Also to accompany the series, online video diaries were created for the following characters.

11"Cassie's Video Diary"

Cassie's therapy video. She likes things that she likes, but she loves everything.

Series 3 (Generation 2)[edit]

The character video diaries functionally replaced Unseen Skins for the third series. A new diary was posted on the E4 website following the broadcast of each episode, and the diary often pertained to the events of that episode.

# Title Main episode
1"JJ's Video Diary""Everyone"

JJ hits the streets of Bristol and posts his 'magic' diary on rateyourmagic. He wants to improve his magician skills.

2"Naomi's Video Diary""Cook"

3"Pandora's Video Diary""Thomas"

Using Effy's webcam, Pandora sends Thomas a message.

4"Freddie's Video Diary""Pandora"

Freddie decides to hijack his sister's Sexxbomb audition tape, with consequences he probably wasn't expecting.

5"Karen's Video Diary""Freddie"

6"Cook's Video Diary""Naomi"

8"Emily's Video Diary""Effy"

Emily has a project: getting her neighbours to get it on.

9"Effy's Video Diary""Katie and Emily"

Effy sends out messages during a stop in her road trip with Cook via webcam to her brother and mum.

10"Thomas's Video Diary""Finale"

Thomas sends his friend Moses (in the Congo) a message about the British people and their wonderful, weird ways. And a song?

The Lost Weeks[edit]

To explain what had happened to each character between series 1 and 2, a series of videos called "The Lost Weeks" were aired exclusively on E4.com. The episodes are as follows:

# Title
1"Effy's Video Diary"

Tony's sister recorded this in his room when he was in a coma.

2"Skins Christmas Special"

Seasonal greetings from the Skins gang.

3"Michelle's Video Diary"

"Black is such a slimming colour."

4"Sid's Message to Tony"

A very special message from Sid to Tony.

5"Cassie Hearts Sid"

Cassie posts Sid a message from Scotland.

6"Posh Kenneth Has a Secret"

"Kenneth has an ode for Jal."

7"Sid's Bedside Vigil"

Sid visits his best mate Tony.

8"Anwar's Video Diary"

Anwar's in love. His video diary boldly goes into detail.

9"Chris' Message to Angie"

Chris wants to show how much he misses Angie, and cares for the Data Protection Act.

10"Messages to Tony"

Sid had a plan to reach Tony.

Although several of these videos bear the same name as a character video diary they are two separate videos. [3]
