"Soft light layer" skin technique

Hi guys, new to the site. Thanks for letting me in.

I'm a pro photographer with moderate photoshop skills. I'm looking at improving my skin retouching techniques and have come across a "soft lifgt layer filled with gray" which then uses dodging and burning. Could anyone point me in the right direction for a step by step tutorial for someone of my modest PS skills.

If you search for D&B technique (dodge & burn) you'll find a lot of tutorials too.
