What...why...why are you making this harder than it has to be?
mktime/localtime let you perform calculations based on time broken down
into years/months/days/etc. "Yesterday" is a calculation based on days, so
do it in that form. Those APIs exist to let you do that! That's what the
solution I provided in my original reply does!

So you know how to do the Right Thing, but you're going to instead leave a
bug for you or your successor to hit months or years away? Please do not
do that on any system that others might depend on.
