Not everybody has perfect skin, and your sims shouldn’t either. One way to rectify this is through scars CC & skin mods to make them more realistic and unique.
Every person reading this sentence has scars. I’ve got so many I can’t even count them all! So why wouldn’t our Sims have them as well? They live such rich, interesting lives and with all the shenanigans they can get into, it’s no surprise that they’d have a few scars to show for it!
Scars CC That Will Stick With Your Sims
This list will feature a variety of over 40 scar types, for faces and bodies, with varying levels of intensity. Due to the somewhat graphic nature of certain scars CC, reader discretion is recommended.
Note: Some of these scars CC will have options for Infants; you may need the CASUnlocks Mod by Crilender which opens up locked CAS categories for sims of all ages and occult status.
Roses, Acne Skin Detail
For most of us, acne is a part of life once we hit puberty. Some people are unfortunate enough to have it pretty severely, and it can leave permanent scarring on their skin. Having acne scars can be a source of self-consciousness for many but luckily, once we escape the hell of puberty it’s something that a lot of people stop caring about. And this sim just goes to show you, you can still be beautiful even with acne scars.Click here to download!

Cleft Lip Scar
Cleft lip is a common condition that people are born with, and the surgery to fix it is usually performed within 8-12 weeks of birth.

Simmer Red Ear Cat took the scars that came with Get Famous and repurposed them for use on your sim’s chest.

Heart Surgery Scar
A simple piece of CC that gives sims a scar from having heart surgery. There’s a fresh stitched version along with a healed scar. Creator JellyPaws also made a version for Infants, though it seems that there currently isn’t one for Toddlers and Children. The scar is eventually planned to be added to a larger mod so maybe we’ll see the missing life stages then?Click here to download!
Automatic Burn Scars
Although this scar mod celebrates something pretty scary, we love the ingenuity behind it. With this mod installed, sims who catch fire have a chance to develop severe burns on their body along with losing their hair, and the scars will fade over time (3-12 days) as the sim heals from the injury.
This mod hasn’t been updated in a while but based on comments it’s still working.Click here to download!

Self-harming isn’t a great practice, but it’s not something a person should be ashamed of having scars for.
