I've heard the face muscles might relax too much with a mask, but I would imagine that if you put on the mask tight enough, it would work.

The exit bag is more complex to prepare, I'm a bit afraid to fail it and I was just wondering if the mask could be an alternative (but the rubber band might not be secure). By the way I can't even get helium on Amazon (Europe) because some comments say the tank is not full, so here I am.

The exit bag isn’t too difficult; there is a video on how to make one on YouTube. Also, in a pinch you can just use the bag and a sweat band (per Derek Humphrey). It’s not supposed to be too tight around the base of your neck, co2 needs to escape.

Helium no longer recommended because of impurity; must use nitrogen

Alright. But nitrogen on Amazon is unavailable in my country. :/ I feel like I can't get it. My friend killed herself using helium recently.

Hello,
Do you think that using the turkey cooking bag alongside the sweatband would be enough for the method to work? I'm planning on using just that.

That sounds like the recommended construction for an exit bag, so yes, it will work.

The use of a mask, instead of a bag, is not recommended. As much more reliable as it may seem, by looking at it, using a mask is much more likely to result in failure.
