In brief: Acne and washing

Twice daily cleansing with an appropriate acne cleanser is more than enough.
More washing will irritate skin. Microabrasive cleansers will irritate as well. Blackheads are not dirt, but concreted body oils turned brown by enzymes in the skin. Acne cleanings by an aesthetician in a dermatologist's office can help as well.
