when you say in soft light mode on blank layer you enhance skin
---what exactly do you do

Here are the basic steps:
1. Sample skin color here with eyedropper
2. It shows this color on the color picker

3. I boost that color brighter (upward) and in this case less saturated (leftward a little). That's an eyeball judgment. After trying that color, I might back up and shift it again.

I create a new blank layer and change blend mode to soft light. Using a soft brush at 20% opacity, I paint with that new color on the skin.
