@ReyBeanz This is happening on PS4 also! Definitely do not have CC or mods installed lol. Started happening after latest patch. Only on Scouts so far I see.

Glowing/Shiny Sims

★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Just wait outside until you see a sim with it.
What happens when the bug occurs? A sim glows? Kinda like you have a fence and the sun shines, you get that kind of appearance. I've noticed it so far on sims wearing the scout uniform, havent had my sim put it on.
What do you expect to see? Not weird glowing sims.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Its not a big deal (id rather you guys focus on bigger issues, like the food stealing at restaurants.) but it is slightly annoying and I thought you like a heads up on it.

Noticed this in my game when I switched from ultra to very high graphics. Only seems to happen with the scout uniform and goes away on ultra.

I restarted the game but this sim still looks like this. Is it a graphics problem?

This is caused by outdated CC. 

Do you have any Mods or CC? If so move your Mods folder to the Desktop and delete localthumbcache.package. Then test the game.

If it works now check for updates to your Mods and CC. Add it back a little at a time while testing until you have found all that are broken.

Actually, I just started playing the sims 4. I recently purchased the game with a few game packs. I'm not using any CC or any Mods with it right now.

It could be your graphics settings since you do not use CC. 
There is a handy guide Carl's Sims 4 Guides  on graphics settings that could help.
Try adjusting the graphics setting for "Sims" and see if this helps.
