The easy way is to just remove the 2 plastic caps from the back of the headlights to let the condensation dry up, but if you leave them off, dirt and other things can find their way in there.

If you have a lot of time and patience, you could take off the metal clips on the outer edges of the plastic headlight cover, then heat the headlamp assembly until the silicone that seals the cover to the back of the whole unit becomes soft. Then slide the plastic cover off, clean the inside of the light, take all of the old silicone off, put a fresh bead of new adhesive around the inside of the cover, and slide it back on the rest of the assembly.

The reason you're getting moisture in there is because the seal has gone bad due to age.

Hope that made sense :)
