The higher the leak rate, the more drying takes place.

If you are getting the 5 that you are referring to as 5% from your machine, it is just an index not a percentage of anything. If your relative humidity was 5% you would find it extremely dry.
I use a full face mask and I use all of the things that have been mentioned. I do not use a chin strap all of the time but use it any time my "tongue training" begins to wear off. I use Biotene mouth wash for dry mouth every night just prior to going to bed. The humidity on my machine is set up quite high. It is not maxed out but it is up there.
