Want to change textured walls

I have textured walls, painted, probably semi-gloss. I do not like the texture. I want smooth walls. What is the best way to do this? Skim coat with plaster? If so should I sand the texture to get better adhesion of the plaster?

Scuff sand the walls with 80 grit sandpaper and them skim coat with joint compound.
