Ada previously revealed she does use Botox occasionally, but has denied altering her naturally gorgeous features with dermal filler.

The soap star revealed the extent her cosmetic work while responding to a troll who called her ‘fake’ on Instagram back in 2019.

‘I don’t use fillers and I rarely use Botox and the only surgery that I’ve done [that] is “fake” is breast augmentation, which I have every right to do,’ Ada wrote.

In 2018, the actress told Daily Mail Australia she was not opposed to cosmetic surgery on principle.

‘Everyone should do whatever makes them feel good,’ she said when asked about Botox. ‘I have no judgement on it whatsoever.’

Ada also lost five kilograms and gained muscle during a body-transformation challenge with Who magazine in July 2018.

She dropped down to 47kg by following an eight-week exercise plan, which focused on strength training, including push-ups and sit-ups.

Speaking to Body and Soul magazine last year, Ada said keeping to a schedule is key to maintaining her youthful physique.

‘Once I get my weekly schedule from work, the first thing I do is map out when I’ll exercise,’ she said.

‘I will write this into my diary and basically set a date with myself. I make sure that my exercise is a priority – that means I am a priority, too.’

‘My workouts are time for myself, so they are very important to me and always have been,’ she added.

Ada also recently told New Idea she eats foods that are high in protein and does high-intensity workouts to stay trim and toned.
