Kylie Jenner has opened up about the effects of living out her childhood in the spotlight, and being picked on by 'millions' from a young age.

The makeup mogul believes that, after growing up in one of the most famous families in the world, she has the 'toughest skin on the planet'.

Kylie, 25, was just nine-years-old when Keeping Up With The Kardashians premiered on TV in 2007.

While Kylie mostly kept her personal life out of the reality series, viewers would regularly pick on the younger Jenner sister for being too skinny and having thin lips.

When she grew older - and went on to launch a hugely successful lip kit line - Kylie quickly became a fan-favourite on the show, and now she's one of the most followed woman on Instagram.

After welcoming her second child, though, Kylie is starting to think that she might have shared 'too much' of herself with the world.

Reflecting on her relationship with social media while speaking to her pal Hailey Bieber, she said: "I think that when I showed my personality too much or shared a little bit too much, people just had more access to say things about the real me.

"So, I decided to push back a little bit - definitely when I got pregnant and, you know, started having kids."

Pouring her heart out, while dressed up as a witch for Hailey's Halloween-themed interview, Kylie added that she used to 'dedicate [her] whole life' to social media, but she 'just can't do it anymore'.

Whether you think it's a good or a bad thing, Kylie says that one thing she did get out of a life in the spotlight was developing 'the toughest skin on the planet.'

She told Hailey: "I think that I have probably the toughest skin on the planet 'cause millions of people have said things about me, decided who I am... it's hard to just swallow that.

"My friends and my family know who I am so that's really all that matters."

With two kids to take care of - her four-year-old daughter Stormi and her eight-month-old son, whose name hasn't yet been revealed - Kylie has less time to dedicate to her social-media-heavy lifestyle.

"I think my priorities are just in a different place. I really have real life s*** to do now," she told Hailey.

"All I want to do is trick-or-treat with my kids. It's all about them now, whereas before it was all about me. Halloween is more fun now because I get to live through them."
