Can someone fix my skin?

I attached the original image, and my attempt at editing it. I want to get rid of the hair on my forehead, and reduce the shine. However, I didn't edit my forehead well so it looks really streaky. Any tips for how not to do that in the future? There's also a spot on the bottom right cheek near my mouth where I messed up the color. You can see a spot much lighter in color than the rest of the cheek, as is the side of the nose bridge and I don't know how to fix that. I think that happened while I was trying to get rid of the shine. I also messed up the right side of the hairline, and am not sure how to fix that either. While trying to get rid of stray hairs, I made that part of the hairline look unnatural. If someone could make the background white or some solid color, that would be great too, but if not that's ok! Thank you!

I just fiddled around with the iphoto retouch button and this is what I came up with. :P

Did the face stuff you wanted and made the background darker, but getting rid of it completely was a little too complicated for me to want to attempt right now given your hair blending in with whatever dark thing is behind you and the fact that hair is just just tricky in general. (Text from earlier post.)

On second look, the shine on the nose looked a little weird with the rest of the stuff on your face gone, so I toned it down a tad.
