Difference between Proxy editing, and resizing 4K into 1080

So I'm aware that proxy editing is essentially working on 4K footage while it's 1080 and exporting it back out as 4K but I've heard that taking a 4K footage and resizing to 1080 and exporting it at 1080 gives great results in regards to quality. Why is that? Or did I hear wrong?

Well, it's more of a hardware issue. I wouldn't have the computer power to edit raw 4K files to begin with but of course would still want rich quality with my projects.
