Because you aren't topping off the evaporation from your tank. Salt doesn't evaporate. This isn't any surprise. When we talk parameters, we mean more nitrate levels. After months of no water changes, these are probably quite high as well. You need to fix the salinity and nitrate levels.

40 is terrible for inverts, and borderline for fish IMO.

Well, there are the 2 issues in your tank. This is plain and simple to keep your anemone healthy and the only wait to help you is to be cruel about it, so I apologize already. These are sensitive creatures that need pristine waters to survive, not mismanagement and simply ignoring them.
If you can't top off daily, get an auto top off system. If you can't keep up with weekly water changes, find a friend or hire someone.
