Skin shedding

I recently (a week ago) visited beach for vacation. For last two days my skin color has changed to red and had started to peel off. Pretty sure it's dead skin. Is this normal?

Hi Redness is because of sunburn and as you rightly said dead skin layer is peeling now. Protect yourself from further sun exposure and apply a good moisturiser twice daily. Next time you plan your holiday always carry a water resistant sunscreen with minimum 30+ SPF. In case problem is not resolved soon please visit a qualified Dermatologist nearby.
