The next thing we need to do is to grab Brush Tool from the tool panel. You can also press Shift+B again and again until it comes as keyboard shortcut. Set the hardness in the range of 50-60%. Now if we brush over any area with black color than it will deselect that particular area on the other hand if we brush any area with white area than Photoshop will select that area. So change your foreground color to black or you can press D as keyboard shortcut. Now brush over the area which you don’t want to be selected. Just brush over it roughly.

      I see that you have enabled “Quick Mask Mode”. Actually the skin color is not changing. As the “Quick Mask Mode” is turned on, your skin is overlaid my Red color. Simply press Q to disable Quick mask Mode.
