how to open a smart object and edit in side it.

I am following on line tutorials and they tell me to double click on a smart object to edit it..it used to open the smart object in photoshop and I could edit it but now when I double click on a smart object it opens it in camera raw...where I can't do what I want to do...ie skin retouching...

Hi Lu, 
Chances are you have placed a raw file as a smart object. You'd have to save that file as a tif/psd first before you place it as a smart object before you retouch it like you are describing.
