This was a good one to practice on. Here are the steps I took using PSP 8:

1. Duplicated background layer
2. Desaturated the duplicated layer
3. Created adjustment layer for channel mixer (check monochrome box)
set red at 89%
green at 37%
blue at 0 %
4.Merged adj. layer down
5.Ran clarify filter at 5 (full strength)
6. Created new layer(named it clone) used clone tool to remove spots and do general repair work
7. Merged clone layer down
8. Duplicated layer-used burn tool to even ther iris (or what's visible of them) of the eyes
9.Used the soften tool (50% opacity) on the face
10. Created curves adjustment layer, gave it just a SLIGHT s curve for contrast

Nice clean-up. Great work on the face (same girl as original). I hate to admit it but your channel mixer tip was a revelation (you wouldn't believe what I was doing before to deal with crappy channels).
