All in Alum

This works best for sensitive skin. Phitkari (Alum) is an excellent antiseptic and at the same time its used for brightening complexion. Boil one liter of water with 2 to 3 medium size of phitkari. Let the water cool and if you water even chill it in fridge. Wash your face with this. This is supposed to lighten your skin tone.

Phitkari - Hindi Translation
Alum - English Translation
Paditkaram - Tamil Translation

This is also great for throat infection. Gargle with warm alum water and its supposed to cure tonsils, and throat infection.

You will get this in medical stores or even some grocery stores. If you cant find it, ask any road side Barber, where he found his. All of them keep one.
