Ok, so I started wetshaving a few months ago with an HD and moved on to a slant. In the past 3 weeks or so I have been traveling from my home in Denver, CO to the Dallas. TX area for work and overall relocation. With gear in tow, I of course proceed to achieve the best BBS shaves ever.
Thinking my technique was just getting that good, I conceded that practice makes perfect. However, when I would travel back to the dry climate of Denver on the weekends to spend time with family.......(and pack), I found the shaves iffy. Some irritation, redness, etc. Fly back down to Dallas, a week of BBS irritation free.
After 3 weeks I have decided the humidity reduces irritation tremendously. I kid you not, it is very dramatic. I would be interested to know if anyone else has had the same experience?
