Frequency Separation and Skin Issues - The Quick and Easy Way

Yesterday I covered how I quickly and easily edit skin using frequency separation. Today I will go over the same technique but applied to skin with more 'skin problems'. I've created an easy to use frequency separation actions to cut your editing time in half! And best of all...it's free! I would say I spend anywhere from 1-3 minutes editing my photos, even when the subject has skin issues. And hopefully you can do the same with these simple but effective techniques. 

These techniques can be used on all genres of photography, even though I used boudoir for the example.
