I dont know what nut convinced everyone they must exfoliate. Your skin is already irritated. Exfoliation will make your acne worse, because it inflames the oil ducts.
Exfoliation may very well further irritate the skin in some individuals, but it also has the advantage of clearing dead skin cells and preventing further pore obstruction, which is obviously a factor in more superficial varieties of acne. Either way, you shouldn't do it more than 1-3 times a week. Also, I personally am somewhat wary of homemade scrubs - I have been very happy with St. Ives Apricot Scrub for Sensitive Skin.
