Your mask should make a tight seal around your face when you breathe in, without the strap on, if it doesn't seal then you'll need to try a different mask to fit your face....happy snorkelling, it's a wonderful world to visit

    You can buy anti-fog spray at many of the shops in Aruba. It's not very expensive and it works pretty well. I think it's silicone based.

    If you're putting just enough in to coat the mask it isn't enough to be problematic.
