Making skin glow?

Anyone have a good tutorial for making skin shine? Like giving it a nice glow, or shimmery look. Thanks!

You can try
1) duplicate layer
2) Dodge tool 50% and go over the things you want to make shiny.
3) Put the opacity on what looks natural.

Another method: Duplicate layer, blur pretty heavily, put into screen mode. Use Advanced blending options. On the top bar slide the blacks to the left a little ways then Alt pull to separate; Then pull further. Then mask to taste.

I only understand "Another method: Duplicate layer, blur pretty heavily, put into screen mode. Use Advanced blending options." I don't get the rest

Ok, if u have two layers, u can right click on top one annd choose "Blending Options...". Then in main window U will see two sliders at the bottom... most of the people didn't even try to use them... but they do magic . Try to use black layer at botoom, and some subject with white back at top, then start to play with sliders... U can also with alt key seperate slider to use some softness

Basically it intensifies and give a soft glow to the highlights.
You can play with the opacity and make a mask to hide or reveal what ever parts you want.
