Edit: my bad. ok, use a patch tool and make a circle around the area u wanna fix. then move over to a good area of the face. after that, go to Edit-fade patch selection. basically, u can go back & manually control how light or strong of the effect.

Hi,

My suggestion would be...

First, create a duplicate layer, than ..use the smudge tool, with a soft brush, try out some diffent percentages "Strenght"...

Succes

Sonikot, welcome to Retouch Pro. The Patch tool will do a pretty good job for you on the shiny skin.
Regards, Murray

Pretty girl. I made a copy of the red channel, used a brown-brown/white gradient fill to color it to a skin tone. I then merged the original over it using it's colors on the copy.

Re: Shine/oil face

There's always a few ways to do something. I created a blank layer above and with the brush tool set to 25% opacity I sampled surrounding skin tones and painted over the highlights. Then I adjusted the layer opacity down.

I'd only go this route if you want to let some highlights show through, as at low opacity it still allows plenty of skin details to show through.

Re: Shine/oil face

I copied the background layer and changed Image->Adjustments->Exposure on the copy to make it darker. I then created a threshold layer adjusting the slider to just select the highlights. I then selected the highligts from this to create a layer mask on the darker exposure layer. I then filled in the eyes and teeth in this mask so only the skin shine was affected.

Then I did some beauty bluring and sharpening, just for fun. Here's the result.
