Re: can anyone tell me how to get this skin tone?

You need a gradient map comprising the 'ideal' skin palette (or an approximation thereof) sequenced from dark to light, which is then masked onto your subject's complexion in colour-filter mode, to varying degrees of transparency.

From a technical standpoint, it is important to note that the human skin-tone is not linear, insomuch as darker regions may exhibit a magenta bias whilst lighter ones will contain dramatically higher proportions of yellow and green, and thus no one such adjustment would normally be sufficient to achieve the natural yet homogenous results you're trying to emulate.

See above.
