We strongly advise that you use skin tone Lightroom presets when processing portraits. These will help you quickly preserve and enhance skin tones. Best of all, you get a polished and professional look.

The presets here are calibrated to keep skin tones looking natural. They also enhance them further by giving a more complex, smoother, and silkier look. They have different approaches to achieve the right result, and we compiled them here so you can more easily download and test them all. All these presets are available for Adobe Lightroom mobile and desktop.
