These headlamps are open to the enviroment so its gonna happen. This is for air exchange to let fog out. You can hook a vac to the vent and maybe suck some out or a hooker maybe

So this is a common issue that you'll have to live with?

remove headlights and bulbs and use a blower to blow it out, then vacuum with a straw attachment (bottom right):
