These crusts must not under any circumstances be picked or scratched off, they must be left to fall off on their own which can take anything from 5-14 days. These dots can be covered with a mineral foundation or mineral concealer.

Once the crusts have fallen off it is imperative that you use the PlaCo PeptideHealing Serum and use an SPF 50 sunscreen.
