How to prevent face redness from mask?

Post by arthuref » Thu Feb 08, 2024 12:22 pm

I used to have an issue with strap marks on my face in the mornings, which I solved with strap covers. But now I have redness all day on my face in the area where the mask cushion is in contact.

Any ideas on how to avoid that?

I may have to RISE but I refuse to SHINE.

If you want to try the Eclipse mask and want a special promo code to get a little off the price...send me a private message.

Thanks...I've never used liners, any specific ones you'd recommend? I use a ResMed Mirage FX mask.

Sorry...but I have never needed or used a mask liner so I can't really vouch for any certain one but in general padacheek.com makes some quality products. I have used her strap covers and barrel cozies and hose cozies in the past.

That's where I get my strap pads, didn't realize they had liners for the cushions, I'll give that a try, thanks.
