Friction can be reduced by polishing, in which by polishing a surface,it will reduce the asymmetry and hence reduces the friction. Second one is by lubrication in which the bodies can easily slide on a layer of lubricant . And third way is by streamlining(for example planes) in which air is allowed to flow.
