Go out earlier and let the camera warm up. Or keep the camera warm with other means. Finally: adjust the aircon to a reasonable level.

Octarine already said, just wait for a few minutes will do.
don't need to wipe anything, it will not solve the problem, once the temperature of the camera and lens same as the new environment, everything will clear up.

I guess you don't wear glasses, right? It's simple physics.

There's no point wiping because the entire glass element is of a different temperature than the air. So, give them time to chill out, and everything will be fine. Don't fret over small things like this.
