In this image the model has two ovals that are pretty obvious from pads in the tanning booth. What is the best way to get these areas to match the skin tone in the surrounding area and not be so obvious?

I had a similar problem with my "model" and posted on this forum several months ago

The best advise I got was have your model go to a tanning booth

I assume you are using PS

I use the "select > color range" tool to identify the offensive area

Pick in the lite area, and use the fuziness slider will help select the appropraite area

Modify the selection by feathering to taste several pixels around the area

Create a new layer

Use the color picker to select a darker / appropriate skin tone for the area

Fill your selected area with the picked forground color with new layer active

Use layer opacity to fine tune the blending

Peace, Love, Clear Skies,
