Face Discoloration Fix Skyrim Having a black or gray face in Skyrim is frustrating, but not impossible. The first step is to find a mod that prevents the game from discarding tint data, which will then regenerate the face with the correct colors. This mod is equivalent to the ‘Ctrl+F4’ command in the Creation Kit. You can also try using High Poly Head or Vanilla Hair Replacer, which should work with a script you can find in xEdit. These patches are safe to use with appearance overhauls involving custom sculpts and textures, but it can break your game if the mod conflicts with other mods in your load order.
Another way to fix this bug is to install a new mod. The author of a user-submitted solution suggests installing a new mod, which is supposed to solve the problem. To test it, simply restart the game and see if it resolves the problem. It is also possible that you’ve installed faulty game files, which can result in this issue. You can also try installing a mod from NEXUS MODS.
