    i used to get it really bad, first thing is to dry it out so after a drive when the engine bay was warm i left the headlight access panel covers off. To stop the condensation coming back i drilled several little holes at the bottom of the hidden side of both heatlightn access panel covers to allow the air to move around and also added silca gel bags held to the inside of the headlight cover with some duck tape.

    Yes mate it is a common problem. I've stuck a packet of silica gel to the inside of each headlight. There's a thread on here about this problem.

    lack of circulation... take the rear cover of the headlight for a few days to dry out.
    or as above silca gel is handy
