    2. Check the mask to make sure it is clean, paying close attention to the area beneath the inner seal for salt or sand. Check the nose pocket and where the skirt attaches to the panel.

    3. When satisfied, dry the mask with a micro cloth and place in a container. The container should be the top item in your kit, so there is nothing on it. A leaky scuba mask is annoying, but so is a fogging scuba mask.

  • Mask Snorkel – How to make sure your mask fits your face shape?

    When you're shopping for a mask, you need to do two tests to make sure the one you're buying is the right fit. If you don't get the proper fit, it's impossible to prevent the mask from leaking.

    Put on the mask and hold it lightly in place with the straps. Look in the mirror and notice that the mask is centered on your face and does not protrude beyond your cheeks. Also, double check that the nose feels comfortable. Pressure on the nose, either on the front or the bottom will tell you that the shape is not for you.

    Look around to see if you can see clearly enough. The second test is the one everyone always tells you. Take off the mask and put the strap on the front of the mask. Remove the hair around the face and put the mask in place. Inhale through your nose and the mask should fit snugly to your face. Try to feel for air leaking into the mask.

    Hold your breath to see if the mask will stay in place. If it does, and you feel no air leaks, the mask should work just fine. Men with facial growth may have difficulty getting a good seal, in which case they may need to apply petroleum jelly to their facial hair.

Instead, focus on getting a high-end quality mask made of the best materials to get the best seal and maintain that seal throughout your dive.


    2. The correct size mask for your face is also very important. If the size is not suitable for your face, it will let the silicone of mask can not cover your face very well so that the water would enter your eyes.
