Newbie Skin Tone Correction in Lr

Hello Everyone,

I am reworking a few old files and found this one I 'threw away' at the time of processing. I shot it with two CTB filtered flashes to the rear and what I thought was a CTO to the front. This turned out to be a crappy yellow filter so I ended up with a yellow colour cast on the skin.

I use Lr 98% of the time so can this be corrected in Lr or does it need Ps?

I have attached the start file and then one I improved using yellow and orange saturation and luminance adjustments. I know the resulting skin tone is terrible from these global changes so if anyone can offer advice on how I can fix this, either in Lr or PS, I would be super-grateful to you

Thanks for reading and happy processing,

Here's a video on correcting skin tones without having to resort to CMYK which isn't possible nor necessary in Lightroom. Covers Lightroom:
