      Is it that clay thing with holes in it they use in Pakistan? It's sort of like a Pumice stone, but made from clay.

          people usually soak the rock in water..and it slowly dissolves..the water can be used as antiseptic, or mouthwash..etc

              Yup, it's called alum.

                  It's said to reduce hair-growth and aid in shrinking open/large pores.. doesn't make waxing any less painful though

                      so she asked you to do the ALUM ritual BEFORE getting waxed or AFTER?

                          I heard Alum makes your skin darker over long-term use..... anyone knows about that?

                              It tightens the pores, if u apply it before u'd have problems with waxing..it's best to apply it after u're done waxing.
