Olivia Flowers is pretty keen on sharing the intimate details of her life with fans, especially when it comes to beauty. In addition to divulging the different beauty treatments she’s had, such as hydro facials and chin Botox, the Southern Charm-er is also an open book about cosmetic procedures, sharing when and where she's gotten beauty boosts and enhancements.

In addition to those touch-ups, Olivia recently took to her Instagram Stories to talk all things skin, noting how she was getting concerned about "dark spots" on her face, aka Melasma. According to The American Academy of Dermatology, Melasma is a skin condition that can cause dark patches on the face and is typically associated with pregnancy since it often comes about due to hormonal changes. 

While Olivia was sure to note she was definitely "not pregnant" in her stories, she did ask her followers for advice on how to brighten up those patches for a smoother look, noting how she gets those "dark spots" on her upper lip area. 

"I was starting to notice it in some of my pictures, and so were a couple [of] other people, actually — I had a doctor in my comments ask me when I was going to 'shave my 'stache!'" Olivia revealed, again going on to ask her followers for "creams," "facials," or other methods to "avoid" the skin condition.

While some followers recommended "Vitamin C serums" and "glycolic acid serums," another user noted the transformative effects of certain creams, including SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense ($108) and Skinfix's Barrier+ Triple Lipid-Peptide Face Cream ($54)

In addition to her followers, Olivia also received a DM from another Southern Charm-er: Madison LeCroy

Entering the chat with her take, Madison, who's dealt with her own skin concerns in the past, recommended "Moxi laser at Germain" — a suggestion that admittedly prompted us to do some digging. 

Upon further investigation, we came upon Germain Dermatology in Charleston. Looking under the "laser treatment" section, we found out more about Moxi™, which is described to "[deliver] non-ablative laser energy" to "revitalize" the skin by "correcting the initial signs of sun damage and aging[.]" Sounds like the perfect recommendation from the South Carolina native!

Olivia concurred with the advice, saying she was also going to immediately purchase the "Darth Vader sun shield" Madison was rocking in her Instagram Stories at the time.
