What Does SKIN Mean?

SKIN means Aesthetic Look in an online gaming context.

The term SKIN can apply to the look and feel of a player, a game's environment, or even hardware equipment (such as consoles or control pads). Changing a SKIN means changing the aesthetic look of something; it doesn't usually affect the game play.

Some games, most obviously CounterStrike, offer new SKINS in loot boxes as a game incentive. SKINS that have been earned during game-play can also be traded for real money among players.
