Find the filter within the other Blur filters. Set Radius to around 60 pixels and Threshold to 7 pixels.

These settings will depend on the resolution of your image, and may need increasing if you’re working on a high resolution photo.

Bear in mind that this is only a quick fix, but will help reduce wrinkles and blemishes on faces.
