Hi
Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
Peeling of hands, feet and lips can be due to hot weather or due to eczema.
Is the peeling associated with itching?
Are you having personal or family history of asthma, hay fever or dry skin?
Is this the first episode or it occurs in every summer?
Are you taking medicines for any other ailment?
Kindly revert back with the answers.

Brief Answer:
Avoid hot weather, apply a moisturising cream

Detailed Answer:
According to your history it seems to be most probably due to hot weather.
I would recommend you to apply a good moisturising cream containing white soft paraffin on the hands, feet and lips twice daily for 10-14 days .
This should resolve the peeling.
Besides this avoid hot weather and stay in cool airy environment.
