Industrial air contamination is definitely not paleo. But, it seems there's nothing I can do to stop it besides purchasing an air filter for the home (which is inconvenient and out of budget). I also don't wash my face with soap anymore, I don't know if my face is accumulating industrial dust for not washing though because there's no difference. I don't have more acne nor less.
I realized that my acne is strongly influenced by the air quality. Whenever I am in a suburb where I can see tons of stars at night, my acne calms down. But once I move to a polluted city, such as Los Angeles, I begin breaking out even though my diet is the same. I currently live in Los Angeles.
If anyone here is affected with skin problems due to air pollution, what do you do?
By the way what I have is not really "acne", I don't know what it is. It's just sores and bumps.
