Maybe you can begin to remove the red with frequency separation and then, the LAB mode could be a more easy way. But like skoobey said, you need to begin with the same kind of picture.

Re: another how to get this skintone

This one is too sterile to my taste and overdone in dodge and burn, but anyway.

The way I usually do these kind of treatment is:
* Mask the skin first
* New Black & White layer blended Multiply, boost yellows up to something around 200, keep reeds in midrange
* Create a curve to boost both lows and highs well
* Hue/Saturation to bring the overall saturation down (I usually do it the other way round but this time is different) and mess within a specific color (i.e. Red)
* That's about it, dodge and burn and fine tune to taste.

That way I get the rough outline in like 2-3 minutes and fine tune everything whilst shaping the skin in dodge & burn. Saves a lot of time and gives a nice visual reference.

Re: another how to get this skintone

You can check that by double clicking left of the layer title. Just a normal curve. Pulled the white point of the blue channel up, as I noticed the highlights were too warm.

P.S. I suspect they actually selected highlights through color range or channels selection, then painted selection white, but I wanted to keep things easy to see without needing to explain how I got that selection etc.

Re: another how to get this skintone

It's so lovely I can't get a gig even as a skin clean up person...

Anyway, there is no such thing. I do it sometimes, but it'll mess you up (I do an all over gradient map, then adjust things locally by using the layer on top set to color, and go to my color palette and use colors with more or less saturation, with more or less of this or that hue and paint in low opacity).

Easier way: skip the gradient map, and just paint in an empty layer set to color at low opacity, and pick colors with a colorpicker tool set to "current and bellow" and make sure your sample size isn't "point sample".
