Repairing an old black and white polaroid

I am trying to repair this old family photo. It appears the the top laminate got peeled off exposing the ink and photo beneath making it appear yellowish and faded. I have tried to repair it various ways nut it always looks like a 4 year old with a crayon did it. Can anyone suggest alternate repair methods and show step step instructions? I have several other photos like this. Thank you.

After you heal the white spots, looks like you need to use the burn tool (use it on a separate layer). Do it slowly and lightly and build up.
