In Adobe PSCS3, I have used curves to take away some brightness, created another layer by selecting the image without the whites of the border. Darkened the second layer to make the white border black.
Increase a bit of saturations.
Thanks

Opened in PS and duplicate layer.
ctrl+M (Curves) color balance by reducing RED and adding Yellow tones. [My tones may not be perfect since I have not seen your skin tones, you may adjust accordingly so the image may not look too pink)
In Filters using Omni Light Effects, soften the harsh light.
Crop the image (Top Layer) using Marquee tool as shown.
In the back layer, using ctrl+U (Hue/Saturation)reduce lightness to 0 (Zero) turning it black.
In the top layer using Filters/Smart Blur, added softness to smooth the face area (Removing harsh lines).
In the top layer using Layer Style dialog box and choosing stroke, added lines as shown.
Flattened & posted.
Thanks
David
