All headlights are sealed....ish....the glass is bonded to the case but the backs are faily open to air etc...if you have got moisture in there it will condense on the glass....might be worth removing the headlight...take it inside....and place it in a dry warm place for a day or so after you have taken out the bulbs and back covers to let the air in and moisture out.....

Most modern xenon lights have dedicated breathers to allow for the temperature variation when switched on. Could possibly be a blocked vent, or maybe the seal around the glass has deteriorated.

unclip all the connectors on the back of the light.....and then 4 screws....two on the top of the light - slam panel and two screws under the light and she pops out....make sure the ignition is not on etc....
