Excessive washing/scrubbing/exfoliating of the skin will exacerbate acne. If you completely rid the skin of all it's natural oils, it will simply produce even more to compensate.

I remember when I first started with oily skin and pimples, my skin felt 'dirty'. I would wash and scrub vigourously three or four times a day... and my skin has never looked worse. My mum (who suffered from horrendous adult acne) advised me quit scrubbing daily, and just exfoliate no more than 3 times a week -very gentley - and to wash my face twice a day with a simple face wash. My skin immediately looked and felt better. There are many routes you can go down, but I would advise short-term, to take a more sensitive approach to your daily cleansing regime.
