Hi Neb

These are strange marks. I guess they were once white glare but now the dyes have changed.
I can’t see any alternative but to paint these out

Create a new blank layer and use a small soft brush to paint out the green. Sample from the surrounding good colours often to correct

I also adjusted the colours using levels
Neat Image
Sharpened


Hope this helps

Ken.

Hi Neb

Like Ken all I could do with it was do a little cloning. I blurred the a and b channels in lab to get rid of some of the weird colors. Then I did apply a new skin tone... not sure how that worked.

That’s Nice
Darkening the shadows hides a lot of blemishes
Also I like the skintones.
Great job.

Ken.

Hi Neb

All I did was change the Mode from RGB to Lab with Image>Mode>Lab

Then I clicked on the Channels tab. There you will see Lightness, a, and b for channels

RGB has red, green and blue channels Lab has (Lightness) which contains all the tone/luminance and detail in a picture and (a) which contains color information green to red and the (b) which contains blue to yellow.

There are many uses for lab that will do a better job than RGB. It is often better to sharpen the lightness channel so as to not introduce color noise. It also helps to blur the (a) and (b) channels sometimes to reduce color noise. I noticed a lot of weird different hues of irregular color in your picture. It did help to blur the (a) and (b) channels.
To blur the channels just click on a or b then Filter>Blur>Gaussian. You don't need a lot of blur just look at the screen and even the tones. Sometimes you can even use noise filters like Dust & Scratches if the noise is real bad in the channel. I did not use that in this case. The blur will not reduce sharpness it only blends the colors together. Some color will bleed if you bur too much but it takes a lot.

But I still used a gradient map with three skin tone colors from another picture to apply the final facial tones. Then hide all on the mask and painted it over the face using the mask.

The gray in the black I reduced by opening a blank layer filled with white set to the colorburn blend mode. Then with a 4 percent opacity large soft black brush I painted over the gray.
