reducing exposure on skin while keeping it looking like skin

reducing exposure on skin while keeping it looking like skin
I occasionally use GIMP to burn-down parts of portraits that compete with the face. For example, bare shoulder, midriff over-light, hands over-lit.

The skin ends up looking greyish, not like less-lit skin. It works not too badly visually, as the emphasis is on the face, but fails on inspection.

I have tried the burn tool and just plain old Brightness, both on a selected area.

Any thoughts?

Genius - worked well.

I have no idea what "multiply with itself" means, but can learn that later. For now, the technique is more effective than an exposure adjustment.

Thanks!
