It's easy to get caught up in the latest craze when it comes to beauty and skincare, but lately there's a trend that actually plays to common sense: sustainable beauty products.
Plenty of Atlanta-based companies have led the industry when it comes to offering organic and natural products for a fair price.
As well-loved brands like Little Barn Apothecary and Mama Bath + Body flourish in their brick and mortar locations, there's just as much room for boutique spas and shops to offer other a curated selection of brands from around the world so that Atlanta beauty geeks can stay up-to-date on their health and beauty routines.
Here are four shops to try when you're in the market for a new natural products to add to your regimen.

Westside Provisions District just got a little bit fresher with it's newest tenant, the nationally-acclaimed Little Barn Apothecary. Founded last year, the Atlanta-based company has remained consistent in its mission to deliver spa products with certifiably organic ingredients, and despite big success continues to make each product by hand in small batches right here in Georgia. Head into their new flagship store and try their beauty mists, a refreshing, fragrant formula that delivers antioxidants to thirsty skin.
636 North Highland Ave. Northeast, Atlanta, 404-998-8198.
Fig and Flower was founded in 2014 by Sara Lamond, who discovered her passion for health through CrossFit and left a career in law to open doors at Poncey-Highland boutique that has become a mainstay. The shop stocks well-known beauty brands that all incorporate an all-natural ethos, allowing shoppers to buy with confidence on up-and-coming brands they haven't necessarily heard of, too. Peruse makeup from RMS Beauty and 100% Pure or shop other natural self-care goods ranging from toothpaste to sunscreen.
Locations in Avondale and at Krog Street Market.
Mama Bath + Body finds its name in the same place it finds its ingredients —mother nature. Born in the kitchen of Emilie Sennebogen Bryant, this line of natural bath products offers scents like "lavender rosemary" and "honey almond" alongside themed fragrances like "zen" and "calm." Mama products are available at various locations around Atlanta, but the company's two brick-and-mortar locations are a sure bet for the biggest variety.
