Hello everyone.  So I'm going back to prismacolors which I have not used since high school (several decades ago now) and I'm running into a problem I have not been able to solve on my own and am hoping i can get some guidance. 

So here is the picture so far.  It's going to be a woman (with a too big smile) in a doorway. 

My problem is her skin.  There is a weird texture that is keeping her skin from looking smooth and light. 

Here is a close up where maybe you can see it better. 

It is adding a texture I don't want and is making her skin darken more than I want.  I tried redoing the face but ended up with the same problem.  Does anyone have some advice on what I can do to fix this or keep it from happening with future projects?  I kinda hate this picture now so if I ruined it I wont be too upset. 

Thank you in advance for your help.
