Go to any auto parts store and buy the headlight restoration kit. They will look like new, if done correctly. There's quite a few DIY headlight restoration guides on Google. Good luck!

This has been covered here numerous times. The 3M Headlight restoration kit is highly regarded.

The key is to wet sand using progressively finer grits ending up with a 2000 grit sandpaper and then a final polishing with a plastic polish. Mask off the paint around the headlights with masking tape.

Get a bucket of water, a sanding block, pad or sponge and several grits of wet sandpaper such as: 300, 600, 1000, 1500, 2000.

Or just buy the 3M kit for around $20.

They will look like new when done.
