To meet our site's higher standard of quality, this article or section may require cleanup. The user who placed this here had the following concern:
There is an overwhelming bias towards Argonian characters displaying the skins on this page. To show the subtle differences between races, we ideally we should display skins for Man/Elf + Argonian + Khajiit similar to the more comprehensive approach ESOFashion takes.
To leave a message about the cleanup for this article, please add it to this article's talk page.

Skins are cosmetic collectibles which visually replace your skin texture. They are overwritten by polymorphs. Skins were originally classed as costumes and could not be worn in conjunction with one.

Some skins are affected by your character's age. On an elderly character, certain skins (such as Deadlands Scorcher or Xoleel Scale) are noticeably duller or more grey. Some skins (such as Amber Plasm and Meridian Purified) don't override your entire character's body; there are spaces where your character's flesh can be seen. With a skin like this equipped, you can see any body markings your character is wearing (like tattoos or Argonian scale patterns) beneath the cosmetic skin.
