The 424 system is a new Korean way of care, including exposure to the skin at different temperatures.
What is 424 system
The 424 system includes three stages of cleansing the skin from impurities and is applied strictly twice a day: in the morning after waking up and in the evening before going to bed, writes lady.mail.ru. Korean women believe that effective cleansing requires at least 10 minutes (4 minutes - removing make-up with oil, 2 minutes - washing with foam or gel, final 4 minutes - contrasting rinsing of the face with hot and cold water).
Not later than 4 seconds after the completion of the last stage, you should apply toner or tonic on your face for maximum hydration. Why are 4 seconds, not 5, 10 or 15? It's all very simple, Asians have proved that after this time, the skin begins to rapidly lose moisture and physically can not completely absorb the tool.
1 Step: Makeup Remover Oil
The hydrophilic oil is ideal for the first stage, it collects all the grease and dirt from the skin and is easily washed off with water. Why do Asians go crazy for this particular remedy? For them, this is an ideal product that does not dry, does not form a greasy film and at the same time effectively cleans.

In order to fully comply with the Asian system, take a small amount of the product, apply to dry skin (the face must be dry, otherwise the hydrophilic oil will not work properly) and massage for 4 minutes (this time is enough to relax the tense muscles of the face and improve blood circulation).
2 Step: Foaming
For the second stage, you will need a foam or gel for washing. Apply a small amount to the face and massage for 2 minutes. If you want to enhance the effect of the procedure, use the sponge kunnyaku. This porous sponge improves blood circulation and makes the skin more elastic.
