Try a trick I often use with candid shots and studio shots of older folks with lots of "character" on their faces:
Do your glam edit on the skin as you have here, but keep an unaltered copy of the original above it on a layer that is turned off (assuming you can do layers). Then turn on the original layer and move the opacity slider from 0% to 100%. Somewhere in the middle by before (0%) after (100%) you'll find the ideal balance, which I find is difficult to do when editing, especially on less familiar faces. You can also use a mask on the original layer to selectively apply it.
