Skin of very old person

I have a color portrait shot of wife's 93-year-old mother. Her skin is deeply creased with brown patches (she's Caucasian) but appears to retain a good moist texture. I'm looking for advice on how best to render it: I want to be complimentary while retaining realism. Any advice is welcome -- I'm an amateur with experience restoring old photos. Thanks!

One thing I can say:smooth out nothing and blur nothing.
