    Do you work with your skin retouching on a seperate layer? If so, you can play with opacity in addition to using masks.

    Always try to do it on a separate layer. Then you can blend them much easier to make it look more natural.

    I use a combo of the spot healing tool and check the " created texture" button to remove blemishes and unnecessary wrinkles, and then i go over the whole face with the blur tool. Makes them look flawless and, keeps the realistic look. Plus its quick and there is no need to make new layers and such. A before pic, and what you have done so far would help us out a little.

    Could we see a before and after? I have no idea how people are making recommendations with never seeing either.

    If you would like, you can send it to me at cindy@visionsinwhite.com.
    Otherwise, I don't see how anyone could help you with a non descript photo.
    Best of luck to you.

    I always make a copy of the background layer and after that work on copies of the copy, just to be on the safe side. After working on the skin with the healing tool or whatever techniques you are using on the copy layer just lower the opacity on that layer and that's it.
