Dry skin: If you have dry skin then you need to treated for that but i'm not aware of treatment to increase perspiration in your feet. There are conditions such eczema, tinea pedis that can cause dry skin. You need to dermatologist or podiatrist to diagnose and treat you condition.

You can't: But you can add moisture to skin. You can use over-the-counter moisturizers regularly (up to twice a day), or you might need prescribed medications that are urea or ammonium lactate based. Good luck.
