  • Did you re-build the font-cache? (fc-cache) though your GUI may require a logout & login again to notice a rebuilt font-cache too...

  • $ sudo fc-cache -f -v, restarted, no changes 8-(

  • How did you add skype? if it's via snap there is a font cache in the snap directory that you can clean, and it'll be re-created next time you start the program (I don't have skype as snap installed so I can't search for it sorry on thss box)
