Mow your grass at a higher length (so that it is longer.) The longer blades help shade the soil, and thus reduces evaporation of water. On the other hand, scalping the grass off at a low height is definitely not good for the vigor and health of the grass. Cutting grass too short leaves the soil exposed to sunlight, which will evaporate moisture fast. Longer grass has deeper, stronger roots and is more resistant to disease and drought. Most grass should be mowed to a length of no less than 3 inches.
