    A Michigan mother defends spending nearly $4,500 a month for spray tan sessions on her two-year-old for beauty pageants, saying its worth every penny.

    Mom claims that the money spent on tanning gives her daughter an edge in the competition which leads to better self-esteem.Huh?

    That works out to be around $145 a day for a spray tan. Is this for real?   In Australia, we only pay around $40 for a spray tan (for an adult - we're not in the habit of spraying our children). I can't help wondering about the possible long-term effects of putting this stuff on a young child's skin either. I honestly think child beauty pageants should be illegal and I  was sickened that one was held in Melbourne last year.  Why don't these mothers spend more time worrying about the face they present to the world, instead of obsessing about their kids' appearances.

    ?? A spray tan in GA is $25 for a pageant kid.

    Looks like they spray tanned the kid's palms, too.
    That probably costs extra.
    lol

    I don't get why judges favor kids with orange skin.  Isn't it a little discriminatory to judge them on the color of their skin--be it white, brown, or black (or orange)???

      The stage lights really "wash out" contestants. Even kids with average skin tones will look really pale. My granddaughter has a naturally darker skin tone, thanks to her Native American heritage. We didn't spray tan her, but the makeup person wiped some kind of lotion on her skin to even out her color.

        Ah, that makes sense. I didn't think of that.
