Snow/Ice buildup on Headlights... RainX?

Well, driving home for the SLC airport last night was quite fun. I dig the new truck in the snow.

I've put in Morimoto Mini's HID projectors and noticed I just wasn't getting the light I wanted last night. AFter I got home, I saw the snow/ice and salt build up on the outside lenses.

Any tricks to preventing this? Waxing lenses? RainX on the lenses?

Eventually the salt will build up, I keep paper towels with me and wipe them down every few hours or so. Rain-X or wax will help because the salt will stick to the wax or Rain-X, making it easier to clean but it won't prevent it by any means.
