If you have access to Photoshop it easy.
Go to hue/sateration and lower the red color

You could try a Hue & Saturation adjustment layer and also it may benefit from a small contrast increase

Re: Help with red skin?

I would use the threshold layer to mark the b&w points and do a curves adjustment, then find the neutral point with a 50% grey layer set to difference blend mode. After that if the red is still way out (probably would be) do the -reds in a saturation adjustment layer as suggested above. Contrast may add saturation in which case you may need a global desaturation anyway.

Re: Help with red skin?

If you have Photoshop or Elements, open the image in the Camera RAW Module, click on the HSL tab, and on the Hue tab just drag the red slider (Top) toward the right until the skin tone looks normal to you. It's as simple and quick (10 secs) as that.
Cheers, Murray

Re: Help with red skin?

Another quick solution is to use the Selective Color adjustment command in PS. In the posted example it seems that the too red areas are specifically too magenta.

Re: Help with red skin?

There are 100 ways to skin a priest. Curves layer and set white point and black point eliminates the overall cast nicely to get the dress white and the tux black. Selective color layer > Red Channel, boost cyan a little then take out a little magenta.
