Newbie Color correcting skin tones

I saw a tutorial about how to color -correct skin by the numbers.

Can someone tell me what values should I use for dark skin tones ?

Re: Color correcting skin tones

Be careful... I like working with defined values for skin tones, but those are RGB and will work differently depending on the area of your image that you bring closer to them (you could try using the curves layer in color mode, but colors change hue at different luminosity values.)

My best advice here is to sample an image which skin tones you want to mimic, and do your own sampling for it, preferably setting the info panel to show LAB values.
