Whether itโ€™s with juicy enviable hair, or radiantly glowing skin, Gabrielle Union and Tracee Ellis Ross consistently give a look. And while most of us have a story to tell about a Scorpio that we know, the only thing we can say about these Scorpios is that they make getting older look like a goal to run towards.

We see on their social media pages how much they care for their skin, and we see on countless red carpets how much it pays off. But even with no products, no makeup, an no extra zhuzh, Tracee and Gabi are the apotheosis of melanin magic.

This is 47! Some nuggets I've learned to embrace… As long as I got a plate (full or not) I'm gonna try to make sure everybody eats. If the seat you are offering me at your wack ass table means I cant sleep at night, that's a hard pass for me. I'll go to my grave creating the world's biggest most inclusive table centering the voices, lives and best interests of our most marginalized peoples. My time with my family is priceless. Admit when you are wrong. And dont offer terrible apologies that include "I'm sorry IF…" Center your joy, peace and grace. Always remember that not everyone is going to love you, like you or support you. That's not ANY of your business. You can STILL love them, support them and champion them & their work. You lose nothing celebrating folks, when the ones who would prefer you take a long walk off a short plank. Dont apologize for doing what's right for YOU. There is no pot of gold at the end of your life for doing what everyone else thinks you should. LIVE! Evolution is a beautiful thing. Just cuz you were a dumbass doesn't mean you have to STAY a dumbass. Learn, grow & evolve. Have fun with cool folks and dont leave until the lights come on!! Happy Birthday to meeeeeeeee ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸพโœŠ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค
