Savanna Jackson might be just three years old, but that doesn't stop her mother spending $4600 every month on fake tans and makeup.
Lauren Jackson has defended her daughter's extravagant beauty regime, insisting her monthly spray tans ensure the other pageant contestants don't have an "unfair advantage".
"I just want her to have the best possible opportunity to win. Besides, Savanna loves it," Lauren said. "I'm so proud of my tanned toddler."
Lauren says the fake tanning is "100 percent safe" but won't let Savanna's face been sprayed in case she swallows any chemicals.
Lauren entered Savanna in her first beauty pageant when she was 10 months old.
