nutricosmetics noun [plural] UK/ˌnjuː.tri.kɒzˈmet.ɪks/ US /ˌnuː.trikɑːzˈmet̬.ɪks/
substances, especially in the form of a liquid or a pill, that are intended to improve your appearance

Nutricosmetics – beauty products you ingest rather than apply – promise everything from firmer skin to thicker hair. That’s the future, according to trend forecasters … these powders, drinks and pills are set to radically change our beauty routines.

blood spa noun [C] /ˈblʌd ˌspɑː/
a place where blood is analysed and special beauty treatments given according to the results

Blood spas aren’t as gory as you’d think. While blood is at the heart of the treatment, your plasma and platelets won’t actually be used in your facial or massage – at least not all the time.

microblading noun [U] /ˈmaɪ.krə.bleɪd.ɪŋ/
a method of making eyebrows look thicker that uses a special tool to inject ink under the skin

Eyebrow trends come and go, from thin and sharp to bold and bushy à la Cara Delevingne and basically every other model who’s been hot in the past few years. But the latest trend we can’t get enough of is microblading, a new tattoo technique that fills brows out or reshapes them by drawing on tiny lines that look like individual hairs.
