Kerry Condon looked absolutely breathtaking as she walked the BAFTA red carpet earlier this week.

The Irish actor picked up the Best Supporting Actress award on Sunday for her role in The Banshees of Inisherin.

If you were wondering about Kerry’s glowing skin celebrity facialist, Ada Ooi has shared all the details!

Here’s a step-by-step guide to recreate the glow at home.


Ada explains: “To open the skin and the mind, I cleansed with Alpha Paradise Cleansing Dew. Its tantalising scent is adorned with jasmine and neroli to open the senses whilst plant oils of Ylang Ylang, Jojoba, Apricot Kernel and Sweet Almond unclog pores and lift away makeup, even waterproof mascara, whilst nourishing the lashes.

“Following cleansing with Pure Active Peel, a gentle physical exfoliant and delicious scrub containing muscovado sugar encapsulated with fruit enzymes, anti-inflammatory oils and marine algae to lift off dead skin in the most natural way that doesn’t irritate the skin.

“One spritz used at every interval to pacify mood, and keep the skin hydrated and soothed. It contains hundreds of baby roses picked before sunset, making it very delicate and calming for post-flight skin.”

Ada leaned into Chinese medicine for step two opting for treatments like acupressure and acupuncture before sending Kerry off on the red carpet.

While these may not be steps you can do at home, it is definitely a nice way to spend your spa breaks!

Ada says: “Using my signature microSculpt method to gua sha, lifting and defining contours, as well as a deep tui-na acupressure method to relax tensed muscles in the jaw, head, neck and shoulders. It’s very important to destress these areas away from the face to open and elongate, creating a slender neckline as they are all connected with one large area of skin.”

She goes on to say that she treated Kerry to an abdomen massage combining acupressure and lymphatic drainage, explaining that it is  “essential to boost circulation and facilitate drainage of any fluid and toxin stagnation”.

This is then followed by acupuncture across “yin channels along the legs to further facilitate waste management for detox”.

According to Ada this is “essential for glowing skin and for Kerry to feel light after her long flight, also to release tension accumulated and re-nurture internal organ systems”.

“These channels strengthen digestion for blood and nutrient transportation, good digestion provides fuel for the body and mind, which is very important during busy periods – especially the hectic awards show season – to ensure immunity will not be compromised.”

Hydrating layers

Ada explains how she ended the treatment: “I drenched her skin with a juicy sandwich of water and oil layers. Layering is very important for creating an authentic glow from within because we have 20 layers of dead skin and we want them all to be nurtured with our epidermis so that when the light hits the skin, they all reflect and show a translucent luminosity. The skin will also be supported with a bouncy water-oil mattress so that it looks plumped with volume.”

Here are the steps:

  • First going in with a water based serum, the Alpha Glow Flash Facial, to create water pathways with lots of essential actives to keep skin supple
  • An oil serum, the VA Repair & Reglow TCM Warming Concentrate is very light but enough to envelope all the water content so they don’t evaporate
  • Followed with a light gel, Sebum & Redness Neutralising Water Shield to inject and compress hydration, while calming the skin with different types of mint and antioxidants
  • All sealed under a light but very nourishing AOX B-Complex Collagen cream.
