Dear Shahana,

Yes, Alum is used in treating Acne.

Mix a pinch of alum with 1/4 cup of witch hazel. Apply as a paste on acne/pimple and allow to dry.Wash it off

Powdered alum mixed with hot water or rosewater and egg white and apply on face for 15 minutes. This pack is good for tightening and closing the pores and prevents/removes pimples.

Good luck!

Hi Shahana, you can mix some alum with rose water and apply the paste on your face. Leave it on for no longer than 10 minutes, and wash.

Whip the white of an egg and add a pinch of alum and apply to the skin as a mask. Leave on for 15 to 20 minutes then rinse off with warm water.
