I get a lot of calluses and dead skin on my hands/fingers, particularly below each set of knuckles. It comes from lifting weights just about every day for many years, and generally I don't mind it, but lately it's gotten more severe. I also don't think the womenfolk enjoy the presence of dozens of rough spots on my hands. I've tried wearing gloves, and it doesn't help unless the gloves are so thick I have trouble keeping a grip. I also tried filing it down once to no great effect. Is there a good way to smooth it out?
