You don't have to edit RAW files individually ... just tweak your import settings and they will be applied to each image as it imports - it's as easy as taking JPEGS with way more control after the fact if you want it.

Cameras don't produce skin tones anymore - photographers (and digital editing) do.

Thanks for everyone's feedback.
Excellent portrait, rhlpetrus. I also like second image better.

I can get better results shooting RAW, but the goal for me to use JPEG in 99% and only to PP selected RAW images. I simply do not have time to go through every RAW file and edit it.

Taking natural looking portraits is most important feature in the camera for me as 90% of my images are pictures my kids.

I did try various settings, but results are inconsistent. Depending on the light, exposure, ISO etc. skin colors come out different with the same Picture control settings.
