I have that type of spots on my cheekbones as well. My dermatologist (Allen Menter) prescribed Renova which is a great product but due to my sensitive skin, I ended up with more redness and peeling therefore I preferred the spots over the redness and peeling.
I am a Clinique fan since I was 13 (now 45 and happily pass for early 30's) and I now use the Repairwear products they have for day and night. I just recently went to Saks and found out that there is a Clinique serum only available to Saks and Neiman's in Repairwear. I have used it for the last 3 weeks faithfully and I can tell a difference in the spots and overall skin condition. It was pricey $125 for the bottle but as of now, with use, I am sold.
I also, faithfully wear a face zinc oxide daily before any makeup and after all other face products are used and that seems to help as well. I have noticed that 1 episode in the sun, not protected enough, will make my spots get darker.
