Just to make the work easier, you'll have to copy the layer (Layer - Duplicate Layer). The previous layer must be erased with the fast button on the Layers window. Then decolorize the layer with the next selection: Image - Adjustments - Desaturate (shift+ctrl+u) and change its brightness and the contrast, making use of the next options: Image - Adjustments - Curves (ctrl+m).

Choose after that the Brush Tool of the white color and paint out the dirt and the dust, except the contours.

Then you should change the color of the contours on brown, applying this command Image - Adjustments - Selective Color.

Then create a new layer (Layer - New - Layer). Move it lower than the contours' layer and change the contours' layer's type on Multiply. Choose after that the Brush Tool and colorize the skin and the tongue of the character with the basic colors.

Start introducing the shadows on the skin, using the same instrument Brush Tool.
