Ron, a selective color adjustment layer will usually do it. A Hue/Sat adj layer will also work, depending on the image.

Try the following:

Add a selective colour adjustment layer with the following settings:

Toggle 'Colors' to Reds
Cyan: -100
Magenta: -40
Yellow: +40
Black: +20
Relative: Selected

Re: How can I get this skin tone?

So far, this one seems to be as close as it gets, it also depends on the original tone of the source picture.

(edit 1) Just found this one too, looks promising, but again, the source has to have the right tone to it.

(edit 2) I think this one gives great deal of details and range of options Part 1 Part 2

Re: How can I get this skin tone?

As far as it's a separated chapter, proper lighting and applied cosmetics may also help.

Judging by the color inconsistency between her left and right leg, it's a gradient map or a selective color adjustment applied heavily.

Also take a look on those H&M ads with Daria Werbowy (plain simple studio shoots on white). A gentle skin tan is applied precisely there, hence the top notch retouchers.
