Retouching bad lips

Does anyone have any good techniques for fix lips that have horrible texture. Dry & cracked. There's really no good texture to pull from.

Or any good techniques in retouching lips in general.

Thanks... David

Re: Retouching bad lips

Depending on the content, you may be able to frequency separate the image and heal from another area. If the texture you refer to are the typical lines / cracks, then D&B is usually very effective in attenuating the lines or eliminating them entirely. Depending on the type of retouch you are doing, there are numerous smoothing and blurring techniques. It would be best if you attached a file with the lips or a small representative sample, so members could offer you some specific advice.

Retouching Lips in Photoshop

On the following GIF I selected lips... used 'Surface Blur, Colored lips, and enhanced the highlights using Image>Adjustments>Replace Color... (Selecting the highlights with the add tool, .. adjusting the 'Fuzziness' and 'Lightness' until the highlights looked glossy)

(After clicking the thumbnail wait a couple seconds for the GIF to change)
