Retouching without airbrushing/painting

Sorry if this has already been posed about before.

I've been looking around trying to learn about more studios & retouchers and their techniques and I've seen a few people and places advertising that they did not airbrush or paint the skin (stating "Airbrushing and blurring is not retouching"). The only way I know how to retouch is to either literally paint the skin and drop the opacity low or to take the clone stamp and give the skin a nice blur and then drop the opacity down to less than 20%.

How do you smooth the skin without doing either of those two techniques?

Re: Retouching without airbrushing/painting

There is a popular Photoshop technique called Dodging and Burning. It is a non-distructive technique in which one "dodges" dark areas of skin and "burns" light areas of skin to smooth out texture, remove blemishes and create or remove shadows.
Google Photoshop Dodging and Burning. Also, there are a number of tutorials on You Tube.

Hi everybody.
Just look this one, this guy (Omar, he's Spanish) is a master:

He's using here the frequencies separations. It could be combined too with some D&B layers.
Just visit his site, will let you mouth open
Regards
