My suggestion is practice practice in the pool. Practice mask clearing repeatedly in the shallow end of a pool until you have it down to a science and are comfortable with that. I would suggest that you distribute the practice over several days/weeks. After that practice leaving the water in your mask for a few second longer before you clear your mask to get comfortable with water around your face when you are breathing through your reg. After this move on to mask removal and replacement. Once you master this move on to swimming around the shallow end without your mask.
