Get some rear lamp covers ;)

They are rubber numbers that seal the unit from moisture and dirt etc :)

Best thing for mist in lights are the little bags from shoe boxes that soak the stuff up.
If you can put one on the back it will keep them water free

Silica gel bags. These will take moisture from the air but only very small amounts (unless you use a lot of them) plus they have a finite life and once they have absorbed the maximum amount then they stop working. They can and do need reactivating which can be done by putting them somewhere warm and dry which drives off the absorbed moisture and reactivates them. We used to use great big bags of the stuff in bandoleers that we hung over jet engines before putting them in MVP (Moisture, vapor Proof) bags. I am not sure how good the lights would look with these little bags in the bottom plus getting them in and out will be a pain. Youngy's idea is the best, get some protective boots that stop the ingress of moisture and once you have got the moisture in there then it will stay in there unless you remove it and replace it with dry air, so you may need to remove the light and put it somewhere and warm and dry like an airing cupboard before refitting.

drilling the hole gets rid of the pond that is currently inside them! then put the lid tops on to stop anymore water getting in
