    You mean the super soft skin? 3 ways I can think of

    1. Reducing clarity and maybe sharpness [works better if you use adjustment brush (K) and paint over the face], balance it out by increasing contrast
    2. Healing brush/clone stamp (Q)
    3. Blow out the highlights using exposure/highlights/whites sliders

    But generally using soft light helps a lot. If you use a harsh lighting setup, no matter what you do in LR you cannot get soft skin without getting super low contrast.

    Thx for the tips! I was thinking I shld probably set my picture as faithful in my camera so that it wouldn't be too contrasty to begin with

    That's not creamy... That's overexposed (blown highlights) and a bit out of focus...

    Yep blown highlights can hide flaws allright indoors and outdoors, natural light or indoor lights. Hard to explain like this gal over here I shot, her complexion is as good as pizza, but I tweak the cam in such it looks smooth.
