When the skin is soft, clean the nails again with a nail cleaner for cleaning any remaining dirt left in the nails. For the dead skin, especially on the heels, use the pumice stone to remove it.
Use the cuticle pusher to push the cuticles when the skin is soft.
Get those lemon slices:

Massage the skin:
