Since I became pregnant, i've had major breakouts. Is there anything I can do to make sure I don't get acne scars?

In brief: Benzoyl peroxide

Most of the OTC skin products for acne are safe in pregnancy.
Simple soap and water works great, as long as you understand that the high Progesterone levels in the first trimester are the cause for acne -- by the end of the third month, most major flare-ups are over.
