Is there a difference if I do skin retouching for portrait or fashion photography for an image in Photoshop first and then do the color correction and color grading in Lightroom? Should I do that first and then bring the image into Photoshop, or simply it doesn't matter?

I always do the color grading stuff before, because if done after retouching it can make the editing more visible. The edited parts are always a bit different from their surroundings and will react differently to the color tools.
