How to remove reflection on skin

I got a picture, because the subject is wearing a yellow windbreaker, yellow light reflected on his chin. See attachment.

The upper part is after I had set the saturation to full with Hue-Sat. The lower part is before i set the saturation.

How can I remove the yellow light reflected to his chin? I tried using Heal tool, and got a weird result.

How to remove reflection on skin

How can I remove the yellow light reflected to his chin? I tried using Heal tool, and got a weird result.

There are many ways to do this. Here are two easy ones:

* Before doing the saturation make a selection that only has the parts selected that you want to saturate. Or use a quick mask so make a semi-transparent selection with a gray colored brush on the chin. then the saturation will not have the full effect.

* or: After the saturation of the whole picture, you could use a black brush with the "Saturation" mode and lowered opacity. Painting over the chin will slighty desaturate it (see picture).
