Can Dust Cause Acne?

I've been working doing drywall and taping for the past while and have started to think that the dust from sanding may have an effect on my acne, due to the few days after sanding a house my acne seems to be worse than other days or if I have some time off work it seems to clear up a bit. Is it possible that all of the dust and having the sanding mask sitting on my face for a full day or two can play a major roll in my breaking out more often?

Last year I did a lot of sanding and dust heavy things and thought I was going to have problems but I never did. I think as long as you wash your face at the end of the day you're good.
