Union told Parade water is essential and helps her complete daily tasks, but not in the way you might think. "I drink a gallon of water a day. I pee all day long. I get a lot of emails returned. I get a lot of reading done. When you see me tweeting, it’s from the toilet. Dehydrated skin is prone to wrinkling so I stay hydrated. There is no price tag I can put on the effect that water has on my hair, skin and nails."
