Here is the menu where you can change the size of the brush etc.
Start to click on the spots that you want to disappear- sometimes you need to click several times till the result is perfect.

Sometimes the Spot Healing Brush will not work-then use Healing Brush Tool or Clone Stamp Tool(S)

As you can see the skin is now almost clear, but not perfect

4. To make it perfect and to glamor the skin a little bit duplicate the layer that you've working on, and go to Filter> Blur> Smart Blur, set the Radius to about 12, Threshold about 30 or more, Quality: Low, Mode: Normal and now the skin is blurred, set the opacity of this layer to about 50% and use the Eraser Tool(E) to erase the blurred eyebrows, eyes, and lips and all except skin so the picture remain real

6. Now I saw the area bellow eyes- this should be also done with the Spot Healing Brush Tool. Very useful for adjusting the skin spots etc are Dodge Tool, Burn Tool and Sponge Tool- I won't explain how they work, because it's better for you to find it out by yourself!:)
