does any of your acne turn into scabs? and have u ever picked the scabs?if you have, has it ever become like a "wet" spot where it doesnt dry forever? and then eventually scab again? if this has ever happened u know how ANNOYING it is! it takes forever for the scab to heal/flake off by itself, and if u wear makeup u know how even more annoying it is.

Picking off your scabs is not a good course of action.

There's also a difference between scabs and crust. When you allow your pimples to heal without picking at them they shouldn't leave a big bloody scab. They might leave a yellowish-white crust,though.

When you pick off a scab or crust you are disrupting your skin's natural healing response and it has to recrust/scab the area to prevent bacteria from entering while it's trying to repair underneath.

Please, just leave them alone.I know it's annoying to put makeup on with those there, but it's better than damaging your skin.
