In brief: Yes
Smoking, in any form, is bad for your heart, lungs, brain, and virtually every other organ in your body, including the skin.
Best to stop smoking if you want to improve the skin (as well as the heart and other organs.).

In brief: Accutane
There is no warning, no increase in side effects, with smoking and using accutane.
However, there is a long list of other precautions to take while you are using accutane. Please check with your doctor, your pharmacist, or go online to find the precautions.
