Perhaps the silicone has stiffened? Might be worth washing your mask with washing up liquid to make sure the silicone is clean. Perhaps try spraying the silicone (not the glass!) with a silicone spray?

Is it possible that you lost some fat/flesh off you face (e.g. have you lost weight, been in training or very active, or been ill)?

Silicone is pretty much inert and non-degradable. The only reliable way to destroy is is to burn it. Silicone sprays should only be needed if you would still use the masks from Vintage Snorkeler's thread.

Yeah washing it well may help. There can be serious build up of stuff on masks. Give it a good wash is soap and warm water and see if that helps. I bet that could be it in this situation.
