It is, unfortunately, a common sight. A nice shiny coat, newly waxed body, sleek black tires, and then cloudy yellow headlights. Often neglected, headlights are a big part of your car's aesthetic. It can happen to older cars and even newer ones when left uncared.
Not only are they not pleasing aesthetically but reduce your car's safety as well. Cloudy headlights can decrease your visibility at night. It can also affect your light for oncoming cars which can blind or affect their vision.
WHAT MAKES THE HEADLIGHT DETERIORATE?
Cracked headlights from collisions and bumps allow moisture and dirt to enter. If left alone, this causes it to become cloudy and can damage the light bulb and socket. Moisture can enter the casing even without cracks. You may see water droplets and fog from inside your headlights. Exposure to the sun and its UV rays also discolor the headlight casing.
