Again, turning a subject's shoulders so they aren't squarish to the camera would be more flattering. For PP, consider a crop, color correction, retouching her teeth, some sharpening, and perhaps some vignette:

For color balance, I added a curves layer and clicked the gray dropper on the wrist watch band. Then I added a Hue/Sat layer and bumped the hue about +12 to reduce the resulting reddish cast.

+1 @ struggle ... got the original

I suspect that there is some corner shift going on with the WA @ wo showing up and wreaking some subtle havoc @ neutrals.

Thanks Karen, Kent.
Hard for me to tell color casts but the sand looks better in Karen's rendition. The skin tones and hair are probably most accurate in Kent's.
I complicated and possibly improved matters but doing something new. I used Viveza to selectively warm and cool her/background, creating complex color balance issues.
