The 66-year-old, who continues to remain tight-lipped about a possible presidential run, was speaking during a Q&A with Twitter on Monday.

Tweeters used the #AskHillary hashtag on the social media site to have the former First Lady answer their questions.

One of the questions came from actress, Kerry Washington: “@HillaryClinton What advice would you give to young women who are considering a career in politics/public service? #AskHillary

Clinton responded by saying women should “grow skin as thick as the hide of a rhinoceros”.

“I have certainly, as you can tell, have had to learn how to do that,” she said. “There’s a lot of good moisturisers I can tell you about if you’re interested.”

Clinton also visited the headquarters of Google and Facebook during her visit to Silicon Valley.
