Sorry, I can't seem to post photos in my posts! Anyway, this happens to a number of other people's CC, and I have quite a few pieces like this! They have this greenish metallic shine on the skin and clothing! It's annoying, especially on really cute things! :( Contacting the creators does nothing because they either don't know, or they don't even answer! Does anyone else encounter this problem?
Anyway, this issue is most likely because of a broken specular map. It could be just one piece of CC that has it broken. So, if you know which in particular is causing the issue, you can open it in sims 4 studio, go to the specular texture part and then click 'make blank', and save it.
Also .package file would be needed to tell 100% where the shine comes from. But I am pretty sure that it's normal map. If you made a custom normal map and saved it in .png it would give such result. Redo normal map and save it as .dds, or blank normal map on Studio tab.

The bumpmap texture isn't done correctly. I believe this is a frankenmesh right? then re export the original EA textures and compare those textures to yours. The culprit is the alpha channel, is completely blank when it should be gray scaled and with details. Also, remember to save this texture as .dds dxt 5 with alpha.

Like I said, this is not my creation, this is someone else's, it's by someone named Cepzid. I have other CC with the same problem, some by Zauma, a couple from Curbs, one or two by Genius, and a few others I don't remember the names of. I have no idea how to create or fix the normal map! This hasn't actually happened on my creations so far!
