exfoliate or not to exfoliate?

I've exfoliated daily for roughly 2 years with Garnier sugar scrub and I have mild to moderate acne on my back and shoulders.

I've started to simplify my facial regime (I have worse acne on my face) and this seems to be clearing my skin up. So I was wondering if I should do the same on my back and shoulders?

The typical advice seems to be to exfoliate but I've started to think I could be irritating my skin and making it worse.

I know that my skin would have a rougher texture if I no longer exfoliated so I'm totally not sure if it will make my acne worse or better.

Can anyone offer advice/experience?
