Before starting the massage, the skin on the hands should be warmed up with rubbing and pinching movements.

Work the honey into your skin until it is completely absorbed. A white mass should remain on your hands - rinse it off with cool clean water. Repeat the procedure for the other hand. Contraindications for honey massage include pregnancy, honey allergies, cuts, scrapes, and skin growths.
Use a homemade stretch mark scrub. Mix a glass of medium-ground salt, a glass of granulated sugar and half a glass of vegetable oil, preferably olive oil. After showering, rub it into the affected skin of your hands. Massage one area should be done for at least three minutes.
