Sometimes a plain, plastic DualShock 4 controller just doesn't cut it. Whether you want customized artwork or to be able to grip your controller better, skins are the way to go. Though most come in bundles that include console skins, you may only be looking for one or two controller skins by themselves. Luckily, you can still pick them up separately at a cheap price. Here are some options to get you started.

Though the latter skins are merely cosmetic, they're perfect for people who don't like the feel of silicone cases. For everyone else, we'd recommend the CHINFAI DualShock 4 Skin Grip Anti-slip Silicone Cover so long gaming sessions and sweaty hands don't become a chore. Because of its textured pads, you shouldn't feel the same irritation that may arise from using a studded skin for too long.

If silicone skins aren't your thing, then you have nearly unlimited options to choose from when it comes to decals, like the GameXcel Protective Vinyl DualShock 4 Universe Decal, but you can surely find almost anything that suits your style more if need be. Just remember, residual oils from your hands will peel them off the controller, so be sure to wash your hands when applying. You can also use a hair dryer to help adhere the adhesive backing. With a few tricks your decal will sit beautifully.
