Ok... Photoshop CS..

I used a healing tool set to the lowest hardness to begin with...and then once I worked with that for a while, I moved up the hardness to 75%..and then I smoothed it out a little with the blur tool thingy.. on 50%..

Ok... she has a poor complection in my opinion.. and I am shooting this texture light in order to create the mood of the photo so I don't want to flatten it out.. but with this kid, I am stuck with her complection.. I'm not known for doing wonders in PS..and I really don't like the super soft look... Basically, I don't want it to look "photoshoped"..at all.. I want it to look like a real person...and so far, this is the best I can do..

Not bad! The cheek area looks like it coud use a little more evening out [there's a minor amount of "uneveness" (I like to invent words) in the vertical shadow area of her cheek], but I probably wouldn't have noticed had it not been so obviously pointed out to me.

Here is my attempt on the first image... I am no photoshop expert by any stretch. I used a very small amount of neat image removing 1/2 the noise and then some very minor healing in PS.

Here's my try, I'm certainly no expert either. Just some healing brush, then a gausian blur layer and a grain layer adjusted to taste. Does it look overdone?

Nice PS work mfharper. No, it doesn't look overdone at all.

JP,

Here is what I've done. 1- I used the healing brush on everything I could to clean up her skin. 2- make an adjustment layer and adjusted the levels till I got the eyes the way I wanted. (the rest of the photo looked horrible) Then I erased everything but her eyes. 3- flatten image or merge visible layers. 4- made a dup. layer and added gausian blur. Then erased everything but her skin. Then I adjusted the opacity to about 14% and flattened the image. I hope it helped a bit and that it looks good on your monitor.

I gave it a try...
clone tool to remove the zits
some noise and despeckle and then opacity adjustments.
It may be too soft for your taste but it was a nice challenge for me.



Cheers

Rudy

Well, here is my try on this. I wanted to keep as much texture as possible. I used the healing brush, then the tool. I used the brush size at no larger than 3 to 8 pixels.

I actually wanted to show one more. I added a glow diffusion slightly to bring back and add highlights.
I also lasso the lips, used dust and scratches filter and smoothed out the lips and some of the cheek area.

Here is my attempt to aid in this matter. Clone, blur, sharpen, noise, and color adjust.
