Try looking up Smudge Painting tutorials.

Plenty of links here from another forum member, palms, http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/pho...resources.html Should keep you occupied for some time

It is not very complicated. It also can be done with surface blur layer, and a mask to apply s-blur only on skin... Although the hair looks like they used Topaz Clean. Perhaps that was all, an adjusted preset of Topaz Clean..

Re: How to make effect like this picture

Lovely photo. I used to create that effect by using a chalk texture brush and smearing the pixels. Easy to do but you need to be patient and maintain constant stroke pressure. It gets a bit boring after a while and you have to resist the temptation to rush it. That said there is probably a filter that does it automatically now!
