(Figure 9) The key to eliminating blotchy skin tones is to shift the reds in the Hue/Saturation adjustment towards the yellow (a plus Hue adjustment) and shift the yellows towards the red (a minus Hue adjustment). The shifts will often be comparable in size, but you can favor one over the other, depending on how pink or tan you want the skin to come out overall. In this case, I corrected the yellows more strongly and slightly darkened them to keep the lightness of the skin tones the same.
