    Smudge tool might do it to a level, if you just go with the noise de speckle option it will blur your image even more.

    Separate Hue/sat adjustments on face vs for background.

    PS - Why are you limiting yourself to such a poor quality starting point? After all, it's a picture of yourself -- you can take as many pix of yourself as you need to get the lighting, camera adjustments, image size exactly what you need.

    Re: How to increase image quality?

    I agree with Tomm Mann.. if it is your image... why dont you shoot with a good quality camera... no matter how many masks you apply, how many filters u use, the basic image quality would not be comparable to that of a Good quality camera shot.
