Summer has hit and I need help with my lather. Before the summer storms move into AZ, the weather is BAD, 95-100*, humidity below 10%, 25 mph winds. The worst part of the summer hit recently and my shaves have become horrible. I get a decent lather (only a couple months in), brush in on, and by the time I get to the last sections of my face, the lather is dried out. I've tried adjusting the water and load time, but it doesn't seem to help much. Any ideas?

This holds true with both my cream (proraso)and soap (C&E nomad). Oh, I emptied my cream into a nancy boy container and it's now the consistency of rubber cement, it's that arid. I guess it's now a croap?

After you apply lather, paint an extra layer with straight strokes to add thickness. Drying will only affect top layer. Skin will be moist.

Make sure bubbles are tiny to invisible.

Play with water ratios even more... Until you get thick lather.

Close the door to the room so moisture from the shower remains.

Or move. Lol.

You can apply lather more than once during a pass.

Too, when it's that dry in Maine (winter) I've been known to wet my face between passes and rebuild the lather on my face to rehydrate it.

You'll figure out what works for you.
