- Open your image.
- Duplicate your background layer.
- On the new layer, apply Gaussian blur at 1.9 (you can do more or less but I like 1.9)
- Change the mode of this layer to Soft Light (you can try different modes but I almost always use soft light or overlay).
- Adjust the opacity of that layer to get the look you want.
Here's an example for you.
