After waxing any area, the pores are open and very susceptible to bacteria getting into the pores. Simple things
such as sweating, working out, climate change, sexual activity, steam rooms, tanning or swimming within 24
hours after your wax can cause these pesky red bumps. Our sweat carries bacteria which can cause infections
if your pores are open. If you don’t regularly wax, sometimes after your first wax (or first wax after several
months or years) your skin can react as it’s been stressed with a procedure that it doesn’t recognize.
