Is my routine a bust?

I come in peace, and to ask you guys of successful routines for face washing, particularly in the morning. I've jumped from numerous variations over the years and am having a hard time sticking with one.

My new routine is to: wet my face directly under the shower head, hoping it washes dead skin off, then apply moisturizer. I used to cleanse in the morning, but found my skin became more irritable and acne-prone (it may have just been a breakout period, but I got cold-feet and stopped). Is this routine ineffective? Should I cleanse, and can I do it in the shower? What morning routine do you use?

What's very strange about my acne (well, probably not) is that it is not in the t-zone. It's on the sides on my chin and on the temple-area. I few breakouts began in these spots years ago, so I included them in my routine, but I wonder now if maybe I should leave them alone. One side of my face, which I never touch because it has little problems, is doing fine, whereas the spots I'm treating continue to erupt. Think I should try leaving them alone, even with acne there?

Thanks! I greatly appreciate the help.
