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.
