Make sims that look like living angels

Have you ever wanted to make your sims look really realistic?

The Sims 4 brought a more cartoonish style to The Sims franchise. From being able to make characters that look like they are from an animated television show to being able to give your sim body proportions that are just unrealistic, many players found joy and silliness in this new style of sim creation. Skin overlays add many features to your sims, such as dimension as well as markings on the body, so many players have enjoyed using them on their sims to make their sims look realistic.

Below are the Top 5 Best Alpha Skin Overlays for The Sims 4.

5. Tender Skin Overlay (Female)

Tender Skin adds more dimension to your sims

To start the list, we have the Tender Skin Overlay for female sims created by Parlinesims. This skin overlay helps to make your sims’ skins look more realistic and less like they are cartoonish. It adds more depth to the look of your skins while allowing for your sims to continue having smoother skin.

I like the Tender Skin Overlay because it portrays your sims as having softer and smoother skin than the skins available in The Sims 4. This overlay also takes the shine off of your sims’ skin and ensures that your sims look like they could jump out of your computer into the real world.

4. Skin N-19 Overlay

Add a sense of realism and fantasy

The Skin N-19 Overlay is an alpha skin overlay created by Obscurus. While the previous skin overlay takes the shine off of the skin of your sims, this overlay plays more into the shine on the skin to give your sims more of a fantasy effect. While most skin overlays give off a feeling of modernity, this overlay makes me think of Victorian times. It is perfect for those who choose to do more Victorian or royal playthroughs.

Like the previous overlay, this skin is also only for female or feminine sims. While I do not use this overlay in my game, I feel like this skin would help make the perfect vampire sim.

3. Skin N4 Overlay

A skin for both male and female sims

The Skin N4 Overlay is a collaboration between Northern Siberia Winds and Obscurus, both known for their alpha custom content for The Sims 4. This is another alpha skin overlay that focuses on the shine of the sims’ skin to make them look somewhat otherworldly and beautiful. This skin overlay is perfect for more dark fantasy gameplay.

I have found this skin overlay to make sims very beautiful and mysterious. Both creators use their strengths when it comes to making custom content to develop this beautiful overlay.

2. Johanna Skin Overlay

Adds the little details that give skin its beauty

This skin overlay by sims3melancholic really gives your sims a more realistic skin and skin tone. As shown in the image above, you can see the detail that this skin overlay provides as it is not smooth or shiny skin and tends to show the undertones which can be seen on real people’s skin.

This skin is available in both pale and dark colors, so you do not have to make your sims all look the same and can give more depth to your sims. I love this skin overlay because it helps to show the beauty that actual people can have even when their skin is not super shiny or smooth.

1. Skin N6 Overlay

It's the texture that makes imperfections perfect

For the number one alpha skin, the Skin N6 Overlay by Northern Siberia Winds takes the spot. This skin overlay looks beautiful on sims, primarily female sims. The skin texture is gorgeous, and it plays with the idea of shiny skin but keeps the imperfections someone would have.

The skin looks very smooth, but you can see ridges as part of the skin to make the skin look more realistic than the basic smooth skin that is provided in The Sims 4. This skin is also perfect for both light-skinned and dark-skinned sims.
