[CPAP] Need help trying to understand where the air leak is coming from.

RE: Need help trying to understand where the air leak is coming from.
I'm finding that my mask fits well when attached but seems to get slippery after a few hours, whether from heating up or sweat building up.
Something unknown is doing we don't know what.

It might help to use an astringent skin cleaner on the areas of your face where the mask cushions rest just before you go to bed. It removes the oils from the surface of the skin and it seems to last pretty well too.
