Acne & dryness

I was having small acne all over my face specially over the forehead and near the nose so i consult a doctor. He prescribed me clindamycin phosphate gel USP 1% w/w and adapalene gel. After its application it has caused too much dryness over the affected region.Is it side effects or it is normal effects of the medicin??
