Dealing with air pollution for acne

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.

"I think it's probably a good idea to focus on thing you can control." Yeah, which is why I am asking this question in the first place. I am going to find a way to go around something I can't control (air pollution).

I think it's probably a good idea to focus on thing you can control. Paleo reenactment tends to turn us into freaks, and I think that's a shame. Nutrition and, if necessary, supplements seems to be a better solution here.
