Genetics, a good skin cream, and avoid the sun.

Several ways. Mix of dodge and burn with curves using the rgb.

Selective color - in red channel add cyan and blacks. Depending on the initial skin color values will vary so you have to wing it, usually it's around +10 - +15 cyan and then between 10 and 40 black.


Plus there's a double rim lighting here which obviously helps.

I would say the model also has a pretty good tan, and some kind of oil or lotion recently applied.  That probably deepens his color, and makes him a little shinny.

Studio lighting and capture play their part in the shading and tones in that image but the skin colur and tonality has been clearly retouched especially on face, most likely dodge and burn and curves to accentuate where the light and shadows fall and to create uniformity in the skin which rarely exsist in the real world. There are other methods that can acheive similar results but def looks like d&b, i'd bet my house on it if i had one! .

Oh there is a workshop in London in mid June by Natalia Taffarel on retouching/skin colour/retouching. She is the best that there is at it if you really want to learn how to do it it right! Here is a link to the info http://www.traintocreate.com/project/natalia-taffarel/ See slideshow of some of her work further down the page. Istock should have her do a workshop at next Lypse .
