I have created a photoshop action that will run on CC (let me know what version you have and I'll see if it will run on your version) 
What it does is sharpen and smooth. 
It copies the current layer makes it a smart object then runs the "high-pass" sharpening technique on it and then brightness-contrast then masks it out. 
this gives you the ability to "paint" sharpness anywhere you want and then modify that sharpness after the fact. 

the other function is it does a frequency separation on your image for skin softening and blemish control. 

if you're interested in this, please send me a message
