Holding a streamline during descent

Are there any alternatives to fluid goggles and a nose clip or pipe goggles and a nose clip in order to both equalize hands free, and equalize or eliminate the need for equalizing the mask? I’d love to be able to maintain a good body position, which is impossible with one hand on the face during the descent. Thanks!

The Hektometer goggles! Absolutely amazing piece of equipment. They are goggles that have a thin flexible membrane and a small hole that allows water into the area with the membrane but the membrane prevents it from hitting your eyes. When you descend water pushes the membrane inward as air space shrinks inside. Theirs no need to equalize them cause the membrane flexes inward.
They've been tested to over 100m. I used for a month of training and many other divers too. Everyone seems to like them. Only met one person who had an issue he said around 20m he could feel it pushing on his eye but he's one out of maybe 10 people I know personally who've tried them. They're €150 but in my opinion worth it.
