There are three major categories in The Sims 4 which are building, gameplay and creating characters and sims 4 skin details can make the creating characters part so much more fun. Using these skin details makes it so you can create absolutely beautiful characters that you’ll just fall in love with.
The best way to make truly interesting characters in the game is to use gorgeous skin mods and these sims 4 skin details to change up the look of your sims.

Don’t you just love some frikin’ freckles? These are a great option for adding to your mods folder because they come in five variations that also add them to your sim’s body. There are some with lots of freckles and more subtle options too!
Some of my favourite skin details to add in the sims 4 are freckles, because they are so natural looking for gorgeous. These Fiona rose nose freckles do not disappoint, they add such a nice subtle freckle to your sims which is so gorgeous.
These freckles also come in four different swatches allowing them to work on a variety of skin tones which makes them much more user friendly.

As you can see, you’re going to get these on both your sim’s face and their body which can help to make your sim feel extremely unique.

These are great because so many people in real life are covered in freckles, not just on their faces, so you can get some representation for those people in your game too.
Sims 4 Skin Details for Moles
A single mole on the face has been seen for decades as a symbol of beauty and is often referred to as a beauty mark. This set of moles hits that idea perfectly with mole options above the lip, in the middle of the cheek and more. These are so gorgeous and add a single mole instead of multiple at once.
It’s extremely common to have moles all over your back but this isn’t something we can have in The Sims 4. These body moles are specifically designed to be on your sim’s back with different placements and amounts for each. They really add realism because this is so common IRL!
This set of freckles and moles has five different sets with different placements over the face and neck. The creator gives you two colour variations one with darker options and one with lighter so there are ten options all together. They are really subtle but definitely add a ton to your sims’ overall look.
There is nothing I love more than a subtle set of moles or freckles to add to your sim’s face. These face and full body moles are a great choice because they add different amounts of moles on both your sim’s face and body.

This is a really nice mole set because it gives you options for how dark you want the mole to be, instead of having it only be super dark and in your face.
Sims 4 Skin Details for Vitiligo
Before we jump into this next section, I know a lot of people are unaware of what vitiligo is and wanted to make sure to have a quick definition so we go into this section with knowledge and can really appreciate these creators for creating these sims 4 skin details for representation.
According to the NHS “Vitiligo is a long-term condition where pale white patches develop on the skin. It’s caused by the lack of melanin, which is the pigment in skin. Vitiligo can affect any area of skin, but it commonly happens on the face, neck and hands, and in skin creases.”

This vitiligo overlay includes one for your sim’s face that comes in multiple versions as well as your sim’s body which also has multiple versions. The different versions have the vitiligo spots in different locations and different sizes.
Custom content like this is so extremely important for representation in The Sims 4. There are tons of people out there who have vitiligo and being able to create a sim that looks like them is important.
This vitiligo skin detail will give you a bunch of options to make sims that look so absolutely beautiful and can represent bodies that we often don’t see in video games.
Vitiligo is a skin situation that you get from birth so having it available for younger ages is very important too. This one is for children, and there is one below for toddlers so you can have it start early.
Having options like vitiligo for all ages is very important for representation so you can have this mod in your game with five options for placement and colouring. Your toddlers will look so gorgeous with this realistic and interesting skin.

The best thing about these dimples is that there are 15 different versions of dimples for you to choose from, making each time you use them have a different vibe for your game.
Sims 4 Skin Details for Scars
These bruised face scars are something I’d add to a sim for a short time after they got into a fight or had something bad happen to them, like a space ship crash or something similar.
Something I’ve never thought about in The Sims 4 is how our sims can get fully lit on fire and have no long-term appearance changes from this. With this automatic burn scars mod you’ll have your sims have actual experiences with scaring that makes sense for the things they’ve gone through which makes the game so much more realistic.
These skin cracks are extremely realistic looking compared to the ones we have in game, so they can be really great for alpha cc lovers since they are so realistic.
These are so incredibly realistic and can be great for vampire of spell caster sims especially, making them extremely beautiful and unique.
These kind of scars would be used in my game if my sim is getting into altercations with werewolves or vampires and get scratched in their fights. It just seems like the type of scars you’d get after that moment!
If your sims are a little evil and love to get into fights with other sims, they’re going to in real life have cuts and scars on their face. These are great scars to add to your sims for storytelling and remove after a few in-game days once they would “heal” and that makes your story feel much more real.
When a person decides to get top surgery (the removal of breast tissue) either for transition or other reasons they are going to have these chest scars right underneath. This is really common for FTM transgender people and if you’re using a trans man in your game you may want to have these scars available to you. It can make their experience feel more realistic which is great!
These body scars and cuts are a type of sims 4 skin details option that I’d add to my characters for a short time after they got into a fight with another sim. This isn’t a thing in the game and there really should be a mechanism where if sims get into a fight (especially if they lose) they should have scaring and cuts!
There are so many reasons why your sims may have scars across their face and why you may want these sims 4 skin details scars in your game. Maybe in your storytelling you have a sim who was attacked by an animal, or someone who was born with a scar from birth (which is really common for twins or triplets), whatever your reason these are great scars for a more healed look that can be on your sims for a while.
Sims 4 Skin Details for Eyes
An interesting way to make your sims look more interesting is to add eye bags to them. Most people in the real world have some amount of eye bags on most days, especially when we’re tired so this is so realistic for your sims.
These are a very subtle but gorgeous eye bag for your sims that look great with a little bit of under eye make up to really make them pop.
These are a second option for a cute eyebag, with these being a little more intense than the last ones. These can really make your sims eyes pop and make them so beautiful.
These eye bags are great for any kind of sim, and can even just be applied to your sims sleepwear to make them look tired. They come in all sorts of swatches for different skin tones and intensities so you can customize your sim’s the way you want.
The Mae Skin is great because it has separate pieces for facial skin and body skin so you can pick and choose what you want to use. It’s available for teenage sims and older and has two options for its intensity so you can really choose what you want.
One thing about your sim’s face is that there really aren’t any aging or smile lines on your sim’s face as they’re getting older. This happy lines skin is amazing because it adds things like forehead lines, eye bags, nose outlines and slight dimples to your sim’s faces. It can really help you make it feel like your adults and young adults are actually different ages!
Afterglow is a face only skin blend that really makes your sims glow. It has a fun bright glow right above the lip and a nice highlight on the nose which make your sims so cute. There are four eyelid options and each have different cheekbones too!
The vanilla skin blend is great for your game because it covers so many things that you’d never think of. The skin is so detailed that it adds chubbier cheeks for teenagers, an Adam’s apple for man sims and more wrinkles for elders. It has options for nipple tints, cleavage overlays and lip tints which is great!
The Sophie skin overlay is available for your teenage sims and older and has two intensities so you can choose how intense you want it to be. This overlay will define your sim’s ab and back muscles and even has palm details for their hands.

Other Sims 4 Skin Details
This royal skin adds a nice light pink glow to your sims face and lets them look like they are always blushing. It really brings some coloUr into your sims face and is just so gorgeous.
This is great for teenage sims because they are often blushing in real life, or wearing a ton of blush so it suits them nicely.
There are a few ways you can make your sim’s breasts more attractive, the first is to use breast sliders and the second is to use overlays for more dimension. This set of overlays are going to add shadows and colouring around your sim’s chest to make it have more dimension and look way more interesting than before.
This glitter kit by MSQSims is so pretty and unique, and can be great for a sims formal wear. These skin details add a bit of glitter to your sims face, depending on how much you want, and are so pretty in game.
One nice thing about glitter in The Sims 4 is that it doesn’t end up all over your home, so why not cover your sims face in virtual glitter instead of making a mess? A great idea in my eyes.
One thing that is pretty odd in The Sims 4 is how weird and unnatural the hair line is, there is no natural start to the EA default hairline. This organic hairline will let your sims have a subtle hairline begin a bit before the hair starts, making it look much more natural in game.
This is awesome because it gives so much more dimension and intrigue to regular hairs in game and makes sims so much prettier.This is also awesome because you can use it with many custom hairstyles too!
This face mask option for sims 4 skin details is fun because all it does is add some colouring around your sim’s eyes. Why does this help? Well, having more dimension in your sim’s face really changes how they look instead of their entire face just being super one tone. It really makes a difference and will make your sims so beautiful.
The show some teeth skin detail allows you to see a bit of teeth between your sim’s lips when they are just hanging out. This is such a cute skin detail that will make your sims even cuter than they were before.
When playing The Sims 4, you never see a sims teeth between their lips when they aren’t smiling or eating. However, this is super common for someone to have a small opening when their lips are closed.
These are a great skin detail that adds contour to your sims face in 7 different ways. You can use these for many sims and give them more dimension to their faces. By default your sims don’t have much contour, so these are great.
There are 7 different versions, allowing you to choose how intense the contour will be, making each sim different.
