Mermaid issues

Here is my latest progress on M is for Mermaid. My problem with it, now that I have her entire upper body and face stitched, is that the color of her skin is really close in value to the background, making it a little indistinct. Any suggestions? These designs have very little backstitching, so I'm afraid that if I were to backstitch her skin, it might look weird. I'd hate to rip out and put in another color, since I would also have to rip out several other areas. Should I try stitching a lighter color over it? Maybe with one strand? I'm just not as happy with her as I would like to be.
