I recently did a fitness shoot and the parts of the mirror were dirty and i have limited experience with PS. Any advise about getting rid of the stained areas?

Are these the stains you mean?
If yes, duplicate the layer and use the burn tool to darken those clear spots, apply a layer mask to brush away the eventual excess...
But as in Photoshop there are many ways to achieve the same result maybe someone will post another method.

With the hair yes.
With the face I would add a new blanc layer on top in soft light blend mode, pick the color sample from the 'normal' face and paint in the greyed area.
The burn tool is no use because it will darken the almost desaturated face part without bringing back the normal color.
You also could add a level adjustment layer on a duplicate layer of the original and try to match the normal color and since it comes with a layer mask, brush away the excess.
