Removing Skin Imperfections...

Healing Brush Tool
The Healing Brush Tool works the same as the Clone tool to paint with sampled pixels of a near and similar area to correct imperfections, but also this one has the advantage that it is able to matches the texture, lighting, transparency, and shading of the sampled pixels to the pixels being healed.As a result, the repaired pixels blend seamlessly into the rest of the image.
