Here are a few retouches, highlihts reduced, some of the discolor under the glasses removed, lightened. Some small blemish and skin softening. Nothing major. Hope you don't mind.

Not at all, I was looking for advice!! How did you take the colour out of the glasses (I wear react to light glasses anyway so that are always bronw, but this is cool)?

Hue and saturation, target the colors and I did a small desaturate and a also chenge dthe hue a little. Then I masked the adjustment layer to only change those localized areas.

I wouldn't use clearskin for a male model, it looks not right if you know what I mean

Yes with a male model the retouch has to be a lot more subtle than with female models. Even then a lot of people over do it but then idepends on the end requirements. Like Frank said and he knows what he is talking about The trick is the use of layers then when you over do the fixes which most of us will on the first pass, you can drop the opacity on the fix layer to reveal the original making a blend.
