I've used PaintShop here. First, reduce the bright tones. There is a tool where you can work specifically on bright spots. I've reduced by 35.
The exposure was corrected, but it created a too reddish hand. So I went in the color palette, carnation, and choose the best one. Finally I sharpened a bit to get more details on the hand. Hope you'll find your hand closer to reality.
