Two Levels of Intensity

The smooth effect comes with two levels of intensity; ‘Light’ and ‘Heavy’. The light version offers a subtle smoothing effect ideal for small imperfections. For a stronger smoothing effect, select the heavy intensity. After selecting your level of intensity, zoom in as much as needed, and swipe your fingers on the area you want to smoothen.

If you smoothened an area a bit too much, don’t worry, no need to start all over again. On the bottom right of your screen, you’ll find the Eraser option. While selected, the smoothened area will turn blue. You’ll just have to swipe along the areas you want to remove the effect.
