I'm getting red marks on my face from my mask, anything I can do?

If you often wake up with redness or marks on your skin from wearing the mask all night, try adjusting your mask so that you get a good seal but with less pressure on your face.

If that doesn't work, here are some tips you can try:

  • Check you have the right mask size.
  • Some masks are available with soft wraps for the headgear straps and act as an extra defense against facial marks.
  • Add a layer of padding between the cushion and your skin, with the Gecko nasal pads.
  • If you use both a nasal mask and a nasal pillows mask, alternate between wearing the nasal mask (which covers your nose) and the nasal pillows mask (which sits at the entrance of your nostrils). This can ease the pressure off different parts of your face
