I don't know much about skinks, but no veg certainly isn't right for beardies

im not here to criticise...but advice. but i dont know where you got your info but its wrong.
beardies for starters should be given veg, as should berbers.
their basking spot should be nearer 40C and their cool end 32C. it should only be allowed to drop to 24C at night.
what is the rest of you set up like? UV? heat mat? basking spot? hides? water bowl?
I personally give veg everyday - various squashes, leafy greens, certain types of lettuce (not iceburg), carrot. make sure its grated so its easy for them to digest. give 5 crickets or locusts every other day.
if you need anymore info feel free to PM me

Don't think i was clear in my first thread. My beardies temp is 105 basking and 85 cool end. They eat peppers, watercress, kale, spring greens. Dusted crix, locusts and roaches. 3 lamps, ceramic, 12% uvb and 2% visible. Berbers have the same set up tank but was told the basking temp should be 90 and they only eat Dusted crix, locusts and roaches, no veg but was told i could try some over ripe fruit. There is not alot of info on berbers that i have found, so wondered if anyone had any experience of keeping them. Sorry about not being clear in first thread.
