How to get this skin?

I have quite an issue with this kind of skin. How do they make it so smooth and the tone is so light? Channel mixer method didn't work for me to get this kind of skin. Really want to know how to achieve this, cannot find any material on particular these skin tones.

Also, is this just precise dodge and burn?

Not sure what your original looks like but I would start by duplicating your background then desaturating it. Change the layer blend mode to screen. That should give you a good starting point.

Natalia's video on white skin would be a good starting point.

I think the answer can partly be in the way the images were shot in the first place and the use of lights to avoid harsh shadows. I was going to suggest Natalia's video too.
