I don't agree with this advice at all. Skintones have absolutely nothing to do with WB values. Unless of course your WB is completely off, and so your skintones get affected. We need to assume that whatever cameras you are comparing are delivering the correct WB value if you are using AWB. And btw, canon's AWB isn't perfect either. Try it in warm lighting.

White balance temperature and tint dramatically influence skin tones.  Dramatically.  I use lightroom, when my skin tones are off the first thing I do is spot check the skin somewhere and compare the R-G-B values looking for what's considered "good" ratios and move temp & tint sliders to get it close.  Rarely do I need to dive much deeper and start tweaking individual colors (which is usually more hassle than it's worth).
