The content of this article is interesting, but as a language nerd/translator the “takes a biscuit” bothers me. This is a British or Canadian idiom. You really shouldn’t use idioms in translations, IMO. asahi.com/ajw/articles/A…

Going back to the first tweet by Naomi, the fact that Shiseido, the oldest and most prestigious cosmetics company in Japan, hired her for a sunscreen products says a lot about changing attitudes re what sunscreen is for. youtu.be/KR9V84EihDQ
