dry, acne-prone skin

Is it possible to have dry, acne prone skin, or am I crazy? I ask because I tend to self describe this way, but many websites pit oily and acne prone together. So for example, Herbivore is releasing 2 new moisturizers, one for dry/neutral skin and another for combo/oily/acne. Does this mean I am just combo tho? What about us dry-acne prone types?

Acne prone is not a skin type, but rather a condition, just like dehydrated I think. It is often associated with those who have oily skin based on the logic that people with that skin type producing more oil so it tends to clog pores and causing acne. However, in reality, those who have dry skin also can develop acne prone condition, but maybe just quite rare compared to the people with oily skin type.
