Ok, I'll try to explain in my own words, and for what I believe, bear in mind that I'm not a photographer, nor a graphic artist, I don't even know how to draw. Maybe one of the more experienced members here could explain this in technical terms.

Just don't laugh, ohh what the heck, laugh if you want to, hehe, here it goes.

The orange color is closer or more compatible to different skin tones as Amica mentioned above, and also not as strong as red, but also containing red color. In the colors gamma is below the red color. I guess when you use it with Saturation and Luminance, "in a way" it acts as the 50% gray layer we use when we dodge or burn, below 50 it brightens and darkens above 50. (could be the other way around, hehe). Being a compatible color with many skin tones, I see it as a base to saturate or desaturate the skin and eliminating red shadows at the same time.

What really surprises me is that this process affects only the skin, leaving lipstick, and clothe colors untouched. <--- This I cannot explain. LOL

So, my bottom line is that you can use it to get rid of the redish shadows because it is weaker than red, something like changing paint color, mixing it with a lower or weaker color.

On the other hand you can desaturate the red (ish) shadows, on the red channel of a selective color adjustment layer, lowering the magenta slider and pushing the cyan up, I still prefer the orange Hue Saturation preset, it works better IMO.

I hope you can understand this... (language limitations
