I'd say just like any other skin with different RGB values.

Small bump maps, maybe even the mi_bump_flakes...?

I would say, if you're looking at how to paint a certain color of skin, you might be able to find something dealing with airbrushing, especially airbrushing for skin tones. Then try to transfer that data to photoshop and your renderer
