have you had a lot of sun exposure. they could be mild sun burns

they look like telangectasia or broken blood vessels under the skin.

do you drink alcohol? alcohol can cause your cheeks and face to be red

Moderate drinker but would have had a lot of sun exposure in my younger years as worked outside. What treatment would you recommend if this is the problem. Thanks

cutting down on drinking can help

you can see a dermatologist. sometimes cosmetic laser therapy can help redness of the face with alcohol use.

http://www.dermnetnz.org/reactions/alcohol.html

is a good webpage to read.

regular alcohol use commonly causes persistently red face due to enlarged blood vessels (telangiectasia) under the skin.

This appears because regulation of vascular control in the brain fails with sustained alcohol intake

cutting down on drinking can help this.
