What I really meant was geling to sort of match the skin color,

No, never.  "warm sells" so I will generally run slightly warm in post compared to the accurate white balance, but I've never seen a need or any advantage to warming / cooling for specific skin tones.

I gel at events to partly match tungsten ambient; I want the background / ambient lights to look like an event (warm), so I don't put on a full CTO / CTS on flash, maybe half.  But never for skin tone.
