As a full face snorkel mask manufacturer, Seabeast cares what our consumers care. As for the carbon dioxide buildup and tight-fitting head straps, we’d like to give some suggestions.
Carbon Dioxide Buildup
Snorkeling is a recreational sport, it still requires more strength and more oxygen when you go snorkeling. In the meantime, we produce carbon dioxide. A full face snorkel mask can be seen as a semi-closed space. The only connection to the outside is the snorkel tube. If the full face snorkel mask is in a low quality, especially the tube in a bad design, CO2 could build up and you will get a headache, dizziness, and unconsciousness when you inhale the bad air.
The first safety tip: Purchase a full face snorkel mask from a well-known brand, so you won’t worry too much about the CO2 problem.
A high-quality and well-designed full face snorkel mask is definitely safe to use. The full face snorkel mask’s creative design makes breathing through the nose and mouth come true. People who have a gag reflex problem with a traditional snorkel mask can go snorkeling easily. A full face snorkel mask can be divided into two part: viewing chamber and breathing chamber. The two separate chamber doesn’t affect each other. They work independently.
The breathing chamber covers your nose and mouth. You can breathe via your nose and mouth. The air circulation realizes through the two separate tube channel: one channel for air-in and the other channel for air-out. The carbon dioxide can be expelled through the air-out channel. CO2 buildup can be avoided in a well-designed full face snorkel mask (a safe breathing system).
The air circulation design also prevents fogging problem effectively. The fogging problem has troubled snorkelers for years. Now the full face snorkel mask offers a solution. Snorkelers can say goodbye to these traditional anti-fogging methods.
The viewing chamber of a full face snorkel mask can offer you a large viewing, which is superior to a traditional snorkel mask. With a full face snorkel mask, snorkelers can see a wide viewing than ever before.

Comfort always comes first. Don’t pull the straps too hard, or the face has to stand too much pressure. It also gets difficult in case you want to take off the mask. Before you go snorkeling, you should practice to put on and take off the full face snorkel mask. Get used to it, and you can deftly take it off even when you are in an unexpected condition.
The second safety tip: Practice put on/take off the full face snorkel mask and get used to it.
We don’t have a full idea of what will happen when we are snorkeling. So keeping calm is the most effective method. If we get panic, we will consume more oxygen and produce more carbon dioxide, which could worsen the condition.
