Drill a hole in the bottom a very small one to make sure that water isn't staying in there.
Cause the water In the headlight can cause moisture. And the toothpaste thing works but it could be happening from the inside.

If you use sand paper then make sure you three step it and only wet sand. So 500 grit...1000 grit...2000 grit. All wet sand..then buff with polishing compound...same thing as buying a 3m kit but alot cheaper

Use a little bit of brake fluid and wipe on the lense (not the paint!) and it'll clear it right up. If your talking about condensation the just let it dry out and reseal it
